A small but loyal group from the Mint still attend the hospital Chapel on the second Sunday of alternate months (odd numbered). I was coordinating this until January 2014 but have now handed this over to Lizzie St George with support from Margaret Andrews. Some new volunteers came forward from the Time & Talents forms last year but not many. Some people are trained to fetch patients by wheelchair from the wards but others prefer to support the patients by joining in with the service and making conversation afterwards. There are no current plans to increase the number of Sundays we officially support but some people choose to attend on other Sundays, which is greatly appreciated by the Chaplains and patients.
For all enquiries about volunteering at the hospital Chapel please contact Lizzie St George via firstname.lastname@example.org or 01392 274857.
