We're dedicating the month of August to all of our amazing volunteers, without whom we wouldn't be able to do half as much as we do for our patients. We'll be interviewing them and posting their answers here.
Next up is Jen Murphy. She has been volunteering in the Project Wingman ✈️ lounge at Warrington for the last 4 months.
Q: Why did you become a WHH Charity volunteer?
A: I decided to become a volunteer after my husband was treated in both Halton and Warrington hospitals. I saw the dedication of all the people involved and volunteering is my way of showing appreciation for the hospital staff who took care of him.
Q: What do you enjoy about your role?
A: Meeting lots of really nice people.
Q: What positive impact has volunteering had on you personally?
A: I am definitely more confident and comfortable in new situations.
Q: Why are volunteers so important?
A: It takes some of the pressure from the staff and hopefully let’s them know that they are appreciated.
Q: What would you say to someone who has considered volunteering but never actually taken the plunge?
A: Give it a try! There are lots of different opportunities, so you are certain to find something that you’ll like.
