St Catherine’s Hospice Volunteers Win Mayor Awards
Two volunteers for St Catherine’s Hospice, David Barr and Ros Simmonds, are celebrating after they were recognised at the Reigate and Banstead Mayor’s Volunteer Awards this summer.
David volunteers as a patient driver for St Catherine’s Woodhatch Day Hospice in Reigate, as well as driving patients he also delivers prescriptions and specimens to East Surrey Hospital in Redhill.
Ros is a volunteer ward support assistant for St Catherine’s where she gives her time to offer patients fun and relaxing therapeutic activities like hand massages and paints their nails.
Peter Nesbitt, volunteer development manager at St Catherine’s, said, “Our 1,000 plus volunteers are some of the biggest donors to our hospice, and they help us in so many ways.’
“We’re absolutely thrilled that David and Ros were recognised with Mayor awards. Both of them deserve it. They make a vital difference to terminally ill people in their community.”
