'Having had to give up my job in finance a few years ago due to a chronic back condition, Les Bourgs Hospice has given me the opportunity to slowly return to some form of normality by working on Reception just two hours a week, despite my pain. I cannot express enough how much I enjoy this role and being part of such a fantastic team at Andrew Mitchell House. It has been, and still is, difficult at times, but it is far better for anyone who lives with chronic pain to have something to focus on. Distraction is a wonderful thing and I would encourage any fellow sufferers to do something so worthwhile. The experience never fails to leave me overwhelmed by it all.'
"I have been a volunteer with two other charities for over 25 years. It is very enjoyable working on reception at Les Bourgs Hospice and is very satisfying giving time back to the community."
