We have more than 1,400 volunteers who work hard to make a huge contribution to our hospice each day.

From helping to care for families on our wards to keeping our award-winning gardens in perfect shape, our volunteers are always going the extra mile to support us and for that we are truly grateful.

Ever wondered what it’s like to volunteer at Severn Hospice?

As part of Volunteers’ Week 2019, we’ve spoken to some of our volunteers to ask them why they choose to dedicate their time to supporting us.

“Volunteering at the hospice has given me a unique purpose in my life, one I am grateful for and one I never thought I would get.”

Mark Tusel
Apley Gardener


“I would recommend volunteering to everyone; it is very worthwhile and great to see we are putting a smile on the lovely patients’ faces.”

Linda Poole
Patient Carer – Day Services


“The reactions we get from patients with whom we engage are, at times, more than moving. I have no second thoughts on being able to give my time in such a way.”

Malcolm Dunbar and Rufus
Pets As Therapy


“Almost everyone living locally knows someone who has been supported by the hospice at some point. If I can help fund this, it is a small price to pay.”

Paul Lloyd
Retail – Furniture Store

“I believe that the hospice offers a tremendous service and I feel very proud to be – albeit a very very small – cog in the hospice wheel.”

Susan Bethell
Apley Receptionist
