Our volunteers love what they do and we’re confident you will too.

What will you get out of volunteering with St Vincent’s Hospice?

Where-ever you volunteer with St Vincent’s Hospice, you’ll meet great people, learn new skills and gain experience.

How much time do I need to commit?

We’d love you to be able to commit to a morning or afternoon a week but understand this may not work for everyone. We can be flexible and will find a role that fits with your availability and our current vacancies. Even an hour a week can make a big difference to the services we can offer.

Gill’s Story

I have been a volunteer with the Online Team for just over a year. The Team sells clothes, shoes, bric-a-brac and other items on various online platforms to generate income for the Hospice.  My role is to prepare draft descriptions and photographs of a whole variety of donated footwear. As my own taste in footwear is fairly conventional, it’s been a real eye-opener dealing with exotic shoe styles I never knew existed and certainly would never wear myself! 

A number of years ago my partner Wasseem received outstanding care as a patient of St Vincent’s and it has been important for me to be able to give something back, in appreciation of the kindness and support given to me during his illness. I am delighted to be part of the fund-raising effort, working alongside of such lovely people.”

Shirley’s Story

“As a volunteer who visits St Vincent’s hospice with my dog Meala I volunteered to support the fundraisers at the car meet in Paisley. 

I got a lovely welcome and teamed up to collect as visitors were arriving. Meala came too and was a very welcome addition.

Lovely friendly team and I’ll be volunteering again for other fundraising events.”
