Gardening, driving, admin, maintenance, all sorts!

These range from helping in the hospice greeting visitors to gardening, driving, administration, maintenance, helping in our shops and at fundraising events and numerous others. Every hour you can spare would be valued and appreciated in whatever area you chose to volunteer.


Volunteers make an enormous difference 

“Our Volunteers are very special people” said Clare Celea Oakhaven’s Volunteer Services Coordinator. “They make a huge contribution to the smooth running of our hospice services and without them our job here would be much more difficult both logistically and financially. We are a big happy family at Oakhaven but we do need more help to ensure we maintain the quality and consistency of the many and varied services we provide our local community”.
