Our volunteers were excited to gather physically again for the “#AlmostBackToNormal Party – Volunteer Appreciation Night” held on 10 June. This was the first physical volunteer appreciation night since 2019. Over 50 volunteers and staff from our clinical team had an enjoyable evening reconnecting over a BBQ dinner, music and fun games. Long Service Awards were presented to volunteers who have served for 5 years and more. Some volunteers also took part in an indoor plant keeping workshop before the event.
Our No One Dies Alone volunteers gathered over a tea session on 27 May. These volunteers, who continued to serve during the pandemic but were unable to meet up physically, were glad for the opportunity to gather and share their experiences. The social and emotional support for one another is important as they continue to serve our patients.
