Paul Bundy – Patient Driver Volunteer

“Immediately after retiring I decided to volunteer for the Hospice without actually knowing the extent of wonderful services which provide to the community. The application process was extremely straight forward and the training and advice provided by the staff was excellent. I have now been driving over 2 years for Living Well sessions and love every single minute of the role. The interactions with both the patients and Hospice staff always me happy and the benefit of these sessions is openly apparent during the return trip to their homes when they recount what they have done. In some cases these sessions provide the only opportunity for these people to interact outside their immediate family circle.

I also volunteer whenever I can to support Hospice functions and would urge anyone with any spare time and thinking of volunteering for whatever role to take that first simple step by initially filling in the online form. It truly is a wonderful facility with happy and highly motivated staff.”
