Get involved Volunteering with St Wilfrid's Volunteer stories and news The individual character and skills of our volunteers are what makes them so valuable to our hospice. Their kindness and empathy shines through every day, as they work with our staff, patients and families to provide incredible care with commitment and sensitivity. St Wilfrid’s Hospice was built for the community by the community and volunteers help us to keep it that way. Don’t just take our word for it though - take theirs! We've assembled some of their stories below to show how volunteering makes a huge difference to 1,000s of lives in our local area every year and what their experiences are like.
