Val and Brian’s story began around 30 years ago after joining the Hospice as volunteers within 18 months of each other. Having both experienced support from the Hospice when their partners were cared for here, they felt volunteering was a way of giving back.
They first caught each other’s eye as they worked together on a range of voluntary roles. Their most memorable include delivering meals to patients, making cups of tea and being a friendly person to sit and chat to.
They also volunteered with the Hastings and St Leonards Support Group for a time and helped out at Open Gardens and Lights of Love. They currently enjoy hand-delivering the newsletter to supporters!
