Babs Wilding

Babs Wilding, retail volunteer

Spending time here is very rewarding. EACH provides such a brilliant and much-needed service and it’s an organisation I feel very passionately about. 

Tony and Jane Reynolds

Jayne Reynolds, events volunteer

It’s so uplifting and can be very varied, which is something I’d say to anyone interested in getting involved. [...] It’s a great charity to support and the hospice is such a happy, positive place, contrary to what people probably think and expect. It gives families relief and respite at an impossibly sad and complex time in their lives.

John Skoyles 3

John Skoyles, fundraising volunteer

I volunteer because I know the tremendous difference EACH make to families at the most challenging time of their lives. Just one child’s smile or a parent's thank you makes such a difference and is worth more than any salary I could or did earn. We can’t make the children better or even understand what families are going through. However, we can travel part of the journey alongside them and do whatever we can to help
