SOUTH Bucks Hospice needs you!

As we em­bark on our ex­cit­ing time of growth, we find our­selves in des­per­ate need of ad­di­tional sup­port from our lo­cal com­mu­nity.

You, the won­der­ful peo­ple of South Bucks, have been amaz­ing sup­port­ers of our hospice for 30 years and now more than ever, we need your help.

Do you have a spare day or two dur­ing the week and want to do some­thing ful­fill­ing that benefits and en­hances your com­mu­nity?

South Bucks Hospice has many vol­un­teer­ing roles ready to be filled and we have some­thing for all abil­i­ties and in­ter­ests!

Whether you want to be­come a vol­un­teer driver, re­tail as­sis­tant or day care pa­tient helper, or if you’d like to start your own fundrais­ing group, we’d love to hear from you.

We have re­cently launched our brand new web­site which is now pop­u­lated with our most ur­gent vol­un­teer posts and if you think you could spare even a cou­ple of hours a week to help us, we would be ex­tremely grate­ful.

Vol­un­teers are a vi­tal part of what helps our hospice sur­vive and we are hop­ing to sub­stan­tially grow our ex­ist­ing vol­un­teer base in all de­part­ments so we can con­tinue to meet the needs of our com­mu­nity as well as pos­si­ble.

I would en­cour­age you to visit our web­site, to find out more about our vol­un­teer va­can­cies to see where your hob­bies and in­ter­ests could be put to ex­cel­lent use.

In to­tal, we have seven fan­tas­tic char­ity shops across South Bucks and, af­ter a busy first few months of 2015, we are now ap­peal­ing for qual­ity stock that we may sell to raise funds for our hospice.

If you have house­hold goods, cloth­ing, ac­ces­sories, elec­tri­cal items, toys, fur­ni­ture or sports equip­ment that you no longer use, we are al­ways happy to take them off your hands!

Our hospice shops pro­vide a vi­tal stream of in­come to sup­port our ser­vices, which rely on gen­er­ous dona­tions from our com­mu­nity.

You can drop dona­tions off di­rectly with our shops or Re­Use Cen­tres, which are lo­cated in High Wy­combe, Bea­cons­field, Bourne End, Ha­zle­mere, Booker and As­ton Clin­ton.
