For Hospice Care Week, it was hard to choose just one figure to showcase the incredible work of our community volunteer team during the COVID-19 lockdown!
So here is the lockdown lowdown – we are incredibly grateful to our amazing volunteers for making this happen between March and September:
Our community volunteer team grew from 22 to 48 during the pandemic
5,000 Here to Help leaflets delivered to homes across our community
Over 2,500 support visits/calls– including 34 essential hospital appointments. The team didn’t say no to a single request!
Over 200 prescriptions delivered to our community
More than 375 shopping deliveries to support local residents who were isolating
Support for more than 150 local families and patients
