Volunteers week stories

We have huge admiration for our volunteers that support us at the hospital but I think it’s true to say that in some shape of form we have all become volunteers in the past few weeks.

Adhering with government guidelines some of our staff have faced having some time at home, but what wonderful things our volunteers have been doing within lockdown:

  • Collecting prescriptions for people that can’t get out
  • Staying in touch with vulnerable friends, family or neighbours
  • Baking
  • Volunteering within their communities
  • Delivering essential items  
  • Creating portals for people to catch up online or social distancing
  • Offering guidance and advise

And the list goes on. One staff member has been volunteering locally and here’s what she’s been doing:


Lee Weeks – Health records administrator


“My daughter works at Mount lodge Care farm and I volunteer to help out on Saturdays. The care farm supports adults and children with learning difficulties, and we have our own young farmers club too.  We have been keeping connected with the guys through zoom video chats and we play online games and have been sending out packs in the post of activities to keep everyone busy.  My daughter is also lucky enough to ride at the farm and last week Topper the therapy pony paid tribute to the NHS.”


Sadly we are not recruiting anymore volunteers at this current time, however if you think you would be interested in volunteering please contact the volunteer manager via email
