My involvement with Beaumond House began in 2004 when I started volunteering in Day Therapy when my triplets started school. I still volunteer in Day Therapy every Wednesday, also now being a volunteer driver I transport patients from their home and back too.
I currently work part-time on Reception, having previously worked for over 2 years in the Fundraising Department. Apart from answering the phone and welcoming visitors, I really enjoy chatting to the patients and their families.
I have witnessed personally how BH can help in times of desperation. My lovely Mum benefitted from this fantastic place when she enjoyed attending BH as a day Therapy patient for over a year, giving my dad a much needed and really appreciated weekly break.
Also, a really close friend used the Hospice at Home service when she was poorly and spent her final hours in a place she felt safe.
In 2019 I took part in the Annapurna Sunrise Trek in Nepal raising funds for BH. I raised over £3000 and collectively we raised over £9000 between 5 of us.
I am immensely proud to tell people I work here and am always keen to spread the word about BH and the fantastic work it does for our local community.
