“Keeping it Local in Leek” Shop Volunteer

Want to join a dynamic team? Why not help out in one of our many Dougie Mac shops as a volunteer. This is a shout out to our local Leek shop who are asking for any volunteering help you can give. An excellent opportunity for building your customer service skills, confidence or just to give something back for and on behalf of the Hospice.

Volunteer Star Awards 2019

During June Support Staffordshire has been holding its Volunteer Star Awards celebrating and recognising the valuable contribution volunteers make every day in communities across Staffordshire.  So far events have been held in Cannock Chase, Stafford & District, East Staffordshire and Staffordshire Moorlands with South Staffordshire holding their event next week and Lichfield & District in July.

We would like to say a BIG THANK YOU to the local businesses and organisations who sponsored the events – we couldn’t have done it without you.

Kingswood Trust Receives the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service

The Kingswood Trust based in Staffordshire has been recognised with The Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service, the highest award a voluntary group can receive in the UK.

Kingswood Trust delivers outdoor environmental opportunities for children, families, educators and the wider community. It offers residential stays, day visits and programmes that support learning, personal development, health and wellbeing, helping some of the most disadvantaged people in the country.

Congratulations to two Lichfield organisations winning a prestigious award

Lichfield Cathedral and Lichfield & Hatherton Canals Restoration Trust volunteers have been awarded The Queens Award for Voluntary Service.

It is the highest award a voluntary group can receive in the UK to recognise outstanding work in their communities, and is the equivalent of an individual MBE. It sets the national benchmark for excellence in volunteering, with the work of those awarded being judged of the highest standard.

“Events on the Horizon” Events Volunteer

Want to join a dynamic team? Why not become an event volunteer, you can be involved in the promotion of events right through to volunteering on the actual day of an event. Great experiences to be had whilst helping to raise awareness and valuable funds for the Hospice.
