St Luke's Hospice volunteers recognised for their dedication
Volunteers who help run a hospice charity have been recognised for their hard work.
Four workers who give up their time for St Luke’s Hospice were rewarded for their dedication and commitment at the 2013 Brent Volunteer Awards.
Fundraising volunteer Dinesh Soree, Val Pinder, Helen Williamson and veteran of ten years Peter Ralph all received prizes at the ceremony at the civic centre in Wembley.
Director of fundraising for the charity Pam Russell said: "Volunteers play a key role in the running of the hospice and we currently have more than 700 volunteers who give up their time to support us in many different ways.
“Volunteers may provide regular help in our shops, at the hospice reception, or help with administrative work and support our clinical teams.
“They may also provide occasional support at fundraising events or collections. We are very grateful for this support and are very proud of each of them.”
During recent years St Luke's Hospice has received less government funding but an increase in demand for its services.
In order to keep running and providing services to the people of Harrow and Brent St Luke’s needs to raise £3 million.
