Flower Arranger Befriender
When We Need You
From 04/03/2008 onwards
We are looking for volunteers who could provide instruction on flower arranging in the Day Hospice with the patients. This would involve working with silk flowers to produce small basket arrangements. The volunteers would be joining and working with the Occupational Therapy team. The advantages of using volunteers are many, not only do they provide services which we could not afford otherwise, but they enhance the surroundings, complement and extend the existing services to patients and families in so many ways. Their sense of commitment and enthusiasm is a positive contribution to Hospice life and is a reminder of the support given so generously by the community to keep the Hospice running.
