The extra support provided by volunteers is essential to the successful running of our hospitals and greatly improves our patients’ experiences.

We are extremely proud of our volunteers and the work they do is hugely appreciated by everyone – staff, patients and visitors.

Our volunteers tell us it’s a great way to meet new people, make new friends and learn new skills while knowing you are making a difference and having a positive impact.

Everyday Heroes

Here’s to the everyday heroes,
the volunteers who do what they can
to ease the suffering of others,
and be of service to their fellow man.

May they know the true satisfaction
that comes from helping others
less fortunate than themselves,
but no less their sisters and brothers.

May they feel the gratitude in our hearts
for all the good that they’ve done.
The appreciation that we all feel for them,
is truly second to none.
