Lewis-Manning Hospice Care is making an appeal for ad hoc fundraising event volunteers to support the hospice in its busy schedule of events planned throughout 2023.
Volunteers manager Nicola Garsden said: “Following the King’s Coronation and The Big Help Out volunteer initiative, which is encouraging businesses, organisations and individuals across the country to help out and volunteer in their local communities, we are looking to reach out to anyone who is considering volunteering to come and join our enthusiastic team of fundraisers.
“We’d love to encourage volunteers to get involved in their local community hospice.
“We have a diverse calendar of community events and campaigns taking place over the coming year and are really keen to grow our team of volunteer helpers for different events.
“Events include our Nightingale Ball, Sand Polo, Wimborne Folk Festival, Swanage Classic Car Show, Fire Walk, Community Candles Remembrance Events, Christmas Tree Recycling Service, Wreath Making Workshops and the return of the Muddy Dog Dash in 2024.
“It’s brilliant how the hospice is being embraced with so many community events choosing to support us and allowing us to have a presence.
“Having event volunteers onboard will certainly allow us to ensure that the Lewis-Manning name is getting out there and will make a real difference to us and increase awareness of the services that we offer to patients and their families with life-limiting illnesses.
“We also have opportunities in other areas of the charity, including support our E Commerce Manager and our Complementary Therapy team.”
Nicola added: “In line with The Big Help Out message, we urge would be volunteers to ‘do something amazing, join in, lend a hand and make a change!’”
