This year we have extra reason to celebrate Volunteers' Week as we're delighted to announce that our amazing team of 745 volunteers have received the prestigious Queen's Award - the highest award given to volunteer groups across the UK!
This award recognises our wonderful St Luke's Volunteers, who since 1971 have shown true dedication to help Sheffield people affected by terminal illness. Our volunteers give 116,800 hours of their time each year, helping to deliver the best possible care to patients and their families. They are an essential part of life in every area of St Luke's and cover all sorts of roles, whether that's helping in our charity shops or taking bucket collections at football matches, making beautiful flower arrangements for our patients' rooms or running activities up at Clifford House.
Our volunteers come from many different backgrounds and have many different reasons for supporting us. Each volunteer brings their own unique personality and set of skills to St Luke's, and in return, they all gain something different - whether that's friendship, experience, a new hobby or even a new qualification.
Volunteers' Week is an opportunity for us to celebrate of our volunteers - their stories, their achievements and their vital contributions to our charity. The videos below show some of the diverse volunteering roles we offer and stories from real volunteers, sharing their passion for what they do.
If you're looking to boost your CV, make friends or simply get more involved with your community, volunteering with St Luke's can help you do just that!
