Birmingham hospital charity celebrates its amazing volunteers.

Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham Charity, Heartlands Hospital Charity, Good Hope Hospital Charity and Solihull Hospital Charity are celebrating their incredible volunteers during Volunteers’ Week and hosting a tea party to say a big thank you for their time and support.

Volunteers’ Week takes place from 3 – 9 June and celebrates the amazing contributions volunteers make to communities across the UK. Volunteering is a fantastic way to build your confidence, pick up new and transferrable skills, and meet like-minded people.

Joan Brown, a volunteer for Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham Charity, said, “I’ve met lots of different people through volunteering with the hospital charity and have made good friends. I love it and always look forward to coming in. It’s a great feeling to know you’re making a difference. Go for it, 100%!”

The hospital charities are looking for reliable and enthusiastic volunteers to join their team. There are a wide range of exciting events and activities for them to take part in, including helping in the Charity Hubs at the hospital sites, joining the ‘cheer squad’ at events, taking part in bucket collections and awareness stands or volunteering with your dog for the Pets in Hospital programme.

Mike Hammond, Charity Chief Executive, said, “Volunteers’ Week is a great opportunity to say thank you and celebrate our amazing volunteers. Our volunteers play a huge role within the Charity, and we are extremely grateful to them for helping us support our patients and staff. Volunteering is a fantastic way to give back to your local hospital and we are always keen to welcome new faces to our team!”
