I did my first shift at the hospice yesterday and I met some great people. It’s oddly quiet, compared with the other hospice I worked in, which will take some getting used to 4 days ago

I’ve been volunteering on and off for a few years now. I’ll be starting a new position at Marie Curie Hospice next week. It’s a 4 bus round trip, but I’m not put off, it’s for a great cause and I’m looking forward to the challenge. I’m hoping to do something involving my Reiki training soon too 1 week ago
I was having trouble finding a place to volunteer this summer (and most of the places I e-mailed didn’t even reply to me, which was the least they could do, really), but I finally found a place to go! I am going to start volunteering at my local library starting next week. It’s only for a couple of months, until school begins, but it’s a good start and I think it’s going to be really fun. 2 weeks ago
I really hoped this would be a goal I could finally mark as done – it’s been hanging around more or less since I joined 43t. But although they accepted me as a volunteer I’ve heard nothing further from Anthony Nolan and now isn’t the time to follow it up.
I’m letting this goal go for now. 2 weeks ago
I signed myself up for pretty much every event going at my local hospice! Just helping out at their various fairs doing everything from taking donations at the door, serving teas & coffees and packing everything all away after.
I’m enjoying the experience, even more than I thought I would and I am looking forward to helping at many more events! 4 weeks ago
