Thorpe Hall Hospice is set to welcome around 100 new volunteers to its team after an ‘incredible’ response to a recruitment event.

Staff at the drop in session were inundated with visitors all keen to find out how to support the work of the Sue Ryder hospice in Longthorpe, Peterborough.

A number of the new volunteers are keen to get involved in a national research study which Sue Ryder is involved in, measuring the impact of befriending on reducing loneliness and social isolation for people at the end of life.

Other new volunteers have pledged support on the wards, with activities organised in the day service centre, with the fundraising team, at events and in administration.

Kelly Thompson-Moore, volunteer coordinator at Thorpe Hall said: “It was wonderful to see such passion and enthusiasm for the cause – people are so willing to be generous with their time.

“We are now busy processing the applications so people can start with us as soon as possible.”

It’s not too late to apply to become a volunteer, call Kelly on 01733 225900.
