Jayne Graves is Cook-In-Charge here at St Andrew’s Hospice. Her role is pivotal in allowing us to provide a home-from-home for those in our care, enabling us to offer tasty meals and treats as well as a friendly face for visitors to talk to as she goes around visiting patients in their rooms.
This is… Kristy, our Complementary Therapist. In normal times, Kristy helps our patients with a range of treatments designed to help their holistic wellbeing, such as meditation, breathing techniques, reiki and target specific massage.
Government guidelines on touch therapy have meant that Kristy has completely changed her focus throughout the Coronavirus outbreak, finding new ways to help our patients find peace and improved wellbeing.
All this week we have been celebrating our volunteers and the amazing work they do at St Andrew’s Hospice and Andy’s Children’s Hospice. We couldn’t deliver the care we do without the help of every one of our team of volunteers, who span across the whole organisation, from reception, to catering, to household, to retail, to clinical and beyond.
All this week we are celebrating our amazing volunteers by sharing their stories with the wider community. We want everyone to know just how much we appreciate every single person who gives us their time and skills to help us improve local lives and we want to say a big thank you to each and every one of our volunteers.
With non-essential shops around the country preparing to re-open, we are working hard to make sure that when we start to re-open our shops, they are a safe place for our volunteers, employees and of course, our customers.
We wanted to pay tribute to Greg Stratford, who some of you may know as ‘Batman’. For over 4 years Greg has been dedicated to supporting St Andrew’s Hospice in any way that he could, what people may not have realised is that he was also battling terminal cancer at this time.
At St Andrew’s Hospice and Andy’s we are celebrating all of our amazing volunteers, all week from the 1st – 7th of June. Our volunteers are a vital part of our workforce and it wouldn’t be possible for us to deliver our services without their time and effort. To show our thanks and appreciation we’re going to share the stories of three volunteers from different areas of our organisation this week.
As we're sure you're already aware, the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has led to a need for social distancing to help prevent the spread. For this reason we have made the difficult decision to postpone the Sparkle Walk which was scheduled to take place on Friday 19th June 2020 at 7.30pm.
