Romney, Shops

My wife attended the Day Hospice back in 2014, and it really helped her. I’d always thought about volunteering, and when I attended one of the Willow Wood Remembrance Services in 2016, I met Pat McCloskey, then the chairman of the Hospice. I asked him to give me a job!

He arranged for me to meet up with the volunteer officer, and although I really wanted to work on the wards, I was advised that it was a bit too early for me to come back into the Hospice itself. Instead, she arranged for me to go to the Waterloo shop and I’ve never looked back.

All the staff and volunteers are fantastic to work with, and Kelly the manager is great. We call ourselves ‘Kelly’s Heroes’! We all help each other and have become good friends.

I've also started to work at the Reddish Lane, Denton shop. Again, it's such a lovely atmosphere and I know I'm helping patients and their families by helping raise funds for Willow Wood. It means a lot to me that I can put something back.

It’s such a wonderful atmosphere at Willow Wood, everyone works together, from Karen the chief executive down. I absolutely love the place and am so proud to be a part of it.
