Hard working volunteers for hospice given special awards
TWO hard-working volunteers for St Joseph’s Hospice have been given special awards to recognise their ongoing support.
Mark Dickinson and John Spicer received awards for supporting the Thornton-based hospice at the 800 Group’s Community Volunteer Awards event in Liverpool.
The 800 Group consists of eight Merseyside charities, with over 800 years of charitable service between them. These awards are a celebration of Merseyside volunteers who go the extra mile and are an inspiration to others.
Mark has been a volunteer at the St Joseph’s Hospice charity shop in Maghull for seven months and John is a volunteer at the hospice’s charity shop in Ormskirk. John produces some stunning window displays and has transformed the Ormskirk shop by arranging the rails and putting pictures for sale up on the walls and colour coordinated items.
Siobhan Clinton, volunteer co-ordinator at St Joseph’s Hospice, said: “Our two award winners were nominated by their shop manager for the support they provide to her, the team of volunteers in the shop and for their kind manner with the customers.
“We would like to congratulate Mark and John on their award and thank them for the contribution they have made to the hospice.”
