Royal Voluntary Service in appeal for hospital helpers

Royal Voluntary Service in appeal for hospital helpers

by Tom Martin (August 2022)

VOLUNTEERS are urgently needed to help out in the shop at Southport and Formby District General Hospital.

The Royal Voluntary Service retail shop needs more friendly helpers with good communication and listening skills to help the charity continue providing the valuable service.

Chris Gray, Royal Voluntary Service Head of Retail, said: “Our Royal Voluntary Service volunteers at Southport and Formby District General Hospital make a huge difference to the experience of visitors and staff, ensuring they feel welcome when they pop by for snacks, comforts and essentials.

“Because our volunteers so selflessly give their time, customers are always greeted by a friendly, compassionate face, helping to make a visit to the hospital, or staff's working day, that little bit brighter.

“We are looking forward to welcoming more volunteers to our friendly team. It’s hugely rewarding work and gives volunteers a chance to make new friends, learn new skills, and to see that they’re making a real difference to people's lives."

Royal Voluntary Service is one of Britain’s largest volunteering charities with volunteers supporting the NHS and thousands of vulnerable people in the community.

The charity also works in local communities running home libraries, companionship support, home from hospital services and patient transport.
