|Name:||Events Volunteer (Casual Basis)|
Flexible – on a regular basis we email you dates and times help needed. You just let us know if/when you can help!
Event volunteers are a vital ingredient to the success of our events.
Helping us with our fundraising events is a flexible way to volunteer, ideal if your time is limited and you are not able to make a regular commitment. It is a really fun, sociable way to help make a difference while supporting our vital fundraising efforts.
We have a wide range of events to get involved in, from helping at Strictly Fun Dancing, The Men’s March, Mendip Challenge, Moonlight Beach Walk and many more besides! You can choose from lots of different roles including marshalling, merchandise sales, bucket collections, baking cakes, stewarding and even face painting.
For more than 30 years Weston Hospicecare has given palliative care to people with life-limiting illnesses in Weston-super-Mare and North Somerset completely free of charge.
We deliver expert care from our base, Jackson-Barstow House where there is a 10 bedroom inpatient unit (IPU), along with a day and wellbeing centre.
To complement our in-house services, we have a team of community nurse specialists who care for patients, and their families, in their homes in Weston-super-Mare, and the surrounding area.
We cover Clevedon and Yatton to the north; Cheddar, Wedmore and Axbridge to the east; and Burnham-on-Sea and Highbridge to the south and everywhere contained within these boundaries.
Our multi-disciplined team deliver treatment for not only patients with cancer but those with other conditions such as motor neurone disease, Parkinson’s disease and all other life-limiting illnesses.
To provide the best possible care, we work in tandem with each other and with other clinicians such as GPs, consultants and other medical professionals to ensure the patient is kept comfortable and informed about their condition while their families are supported for as long as they need too.
While our clinical team is outstanding at delivering emotional care, we also have a specially-trained team of experts who form the Family Support Team. The team’s purpose is to provide world-class social, emotional and spiritual support for both patients and their families too.
This care is tailored to each person involved and it can be delivered in the comfort of the patient’s home or on-site at Jackson-Barstow House.
Every person in our care is seen as the special person they are. We always ask ourselves “Would this be good enough for a member of our own families?” We constantly do everything we can to make our patients happy. We’ve hosted weddings, arranged for pets to visit and fulfilled many more last wishes.
