Our hospice day unit was transformed into a traditional English Tea Room on Monday 3rd October as we celebrated our volunteers at the Long Service Awards 2016 at Apley Castle, Telford.
The Trustees, Chairman and Vice- Chairman gathered to acknowledge the incredible work of our volunteers, with some present having been with us for 25 years. Tea and cake were served and the volunteers were able to meet with our Trustees and discuss how the hospice has grown over their years of service.
Our Chairman, Tony Cordery, thanked everyone for their contribution and their commitment, acknowledging that without their support we wouldn’t be able to care for families living with terminal illnesses throughout Shropshire and Mid Wales. Our Vice-chairman, John Fairclough, then presented our volunteers with a certificate thanking them on behalf of Severn Hospice.
Phil Brannon, Volunteer coordinator at Severn Hospice, said: “Our Volunteer Long Service Awards give us the opportunity to recognise the outstanding work done by those who give their time free of charge to be there for the people that need our help. The hospice wouldn’t be here without them and I’m privileged to work with them every day.”
We host a series of awards throughout the year, with the next events to be held on Friday 21st October and Saturday 22nd October. We celebrate the work of volunteers who have been with us for 5, 10, 20 and 25 years.
We would like to thank all of or volunteers for their generosity, it is because you care that we can.
