A vitally important role, as the receptionist is often the first point of contact for anyone ringing or visiting the Hospice, answering the busy telephone, dealing with enquiries, and passing on messages.

Volunteers help with general tasks, talking with patients and serving meals.
Using their own cars, drivers transport patients to and from the hospice, generally once a week. A fuel allowance is made. Drivers need fully comprehensive insurance, a valid driving license and permission from their insurance company to use their car for this purpose.
Volunteers help with a variety of non-nursing tasks as requested by the nursing staff. These might include answering the door, giving help to patients, their relatives or visitors, arranging flowers, answering the telephone, and other duties as required.
Retail We are always looking for assistance in our charity shops across the area. For serving customers, sorting donated stock and collecting/delivering donated goods. If you have a couple of hours to spare each week, we would be thrilled to hear from you.
Fundraising & Events Our fundraising team work tirelessly to raise the funds to maintain hospice services at St Kentigern. Volunteers are very valuable to the team in both administration roles in the office, to helping at events from marshalling to bucket collecting and to aid with promotion of the hospice.
