To St Michael’s

I had been looking forward to my visit to St Michael’s Hospice as a volunteer. I had visited St Michael’s before several times, but I knew that vounteering would be a different perspective and I was keen to help them. St Michael’s is at the heart of our community, and does a marvellous job.

I was volunteering in the In Patient Unit and then with the day therapy team. This included making drinks for the patients, taking lunch orders and participating in the day activities.

St Michael’s is a special place. By definition a hospice deals with very difficult circumstances – situations that every family will have to face at some stage but that does not make it easy. It is really hard. But the team – professional and volunteer – could not be more caring; the atmosphere is loving and calm and cheerful.
