Join our Volunteer Open Evening

John Taylor Hospice is holding an open evening for people interested in becoming volunteers.

The event at the hospice in Erdington on 19 September will give people the chance to meet current volunteers, discover the different options available and chat to the various teams.

Head of Volunteering Mark Jones said: “We are frequently asked about volunteering opportunities and this evening will give people the chance to find out all they would like to know in one place.

“Our volunteers are an essential part of our team. Helping in the hospice, in shops, in fundraising and with services like driving and wellbeing, they make an enormous contribution to our hospice.

“People volunteer for a range of different reasons – to meet new people, to get out of the house, to build new skills and to give something back. And they enjoy it – in our most recent survey of our volunteers 100% said they would recommend volunteering for John Taylor Hospice.

“Now we are looking forward to meeting lots of new potential volunteers at our open evening – and to welcoming them to the hospice.”

Our Volunteer Open Evening takes place at John Taylor Hospice, 76 Grange Road, Erdington B24 0DF on Thursday 19 September and is a drop-in between 6-8pm. All are welcome and places don’t need to be booked.

What our patients think

“I’d have really struggled without them”

“They’ve been ever so good to me and that’s why I wanted to fundraise and do something to help just like they’ve helped me.”

Philomena Sharpe

“The impact they had will never be forgotten”

“The community nurses were so helpful and they’re lovely people. They put my mind at rest and it’s such a comfort to know you’re not on your own.”

Jackie Day

“An angel sent into my life”

“I can’t thank Angie (patient and family support worker) enough for everything she’s done for us. She’s so reliable and professional – a wonderful person. She took away all these worries and was there for me in my time of need.”

Patricia Smith-Evans

“I’ve really enjoyed it”

“The FAB Programme has helped me to get fitter and my walking is better. Everyone is really nice at the hospice, they’re friendly and they’re good company. I’d recommend it to anyone who is in a similar situation to me.”
