Jacqui’s story

Jacqui Bramma is a valued member of our Erdington retail team.

Jacqui joined our Erdington charity shop in May 2018 after hearing about volunteering opportunities through a close friend. “My friend John is a volunteer in the hospice’s Living Well Centre,” explains Jacqui, who lives in Sutton Coldfield. “He told me that the first John Taylor Hospice charity shop was set to open in Erdington and that the store was seeking volunteers.”

Jacqui, a retired NHS Personnel Manager, volunteers two afternoons a week. “I’m so glad I joined the team as I absolutely love it,” adds grandmother-of-three Jacqui. “We all get on so well and it is tremendous fun. As John Taylor Hospice is local, you get to meet so many people with connections to the hospice and they share their stories with you. I would thoroughly recommend volunteering – and in fact I have to many friends!”

To find out how you can support local families by giving the gift of time as a volunteer please see our current vacancies or contact our friendly Volunteering Team on 0121 728 6738 or by email at [email protected]
