I have been in Woodlands Charity shop for fifteen years. I have enjoyed meeting lovely members of staff and customers. I enjoy meeting people and helping people who are ill through my work at the shop. Good luck to Woodlands, it is a wonderful Hospice”

“It’s an honour to be a volunteer at Woodlands Hospice. Never a day goes by without someone telling us of our value. It’s like being part of one big family. It has also given me the opportunity that normally I wouldn’t have had ie Abseil in my 65th year and Zip Wire in my 66th. Wow! Who would have thought it! Staff are brilliant keep up the good work”

“I didn’t know anything about Woodlands until I saw an advert in the local garden centre for a volunteer gardener, and as I was just retired it was just the job for me. I have grown to really love the garden here, and there are so many appreciative comments from patients, visitors and staff who obviously find the garden a great asset”

“I work here in Woodlands after visiting a friend who received the best care I have ever witnessed”

“My first memory of Woodlands was when I came to visit a friend who was very ill, my other friend and I decided we would like to become volunteers so we gave it a go. Five years later we’re still here loving every moment. I get so much satisfaction”
