Volunteering team nominated for Manchester Award

Our fantastic volunteering team has been shortlisted as part of the first ever Greater Manchester Health and Care Champion Awards.

By News Team on May 3, 2018

The Greater Manchester Health and Care Champion Awards 2018 are the first in the city-region to recognise members of our paid and unpaid health and care workforce who regularly go above and beyond to improve the health and well-being of the people of Greater Manchester.

The St Ann’s Hospice Volunteering Team has been shortlisted for the Dedication to Volunteering Award alongside Bill McKenna, Stockport NHS Foundation Trust and Village Angels, LGBT Foundation.

The awards are organised by Greater Manchester Health and Social Care Partnership, the body that oversees the area’s £6bn devolved health and social care budget, with support from the Mayor of Greater Manchester, Andy Burnham. Award categories include ‘Outstanding Carer’, ‘Apprentice of the Year’, ‘Dedication to volunteering’ and the ‘People’s Champion’.

All nominations will be considered by a judging panel and the winners announced at a sponsored event in July.

We look forward to the awards being announced in July but whatever the outcome we’re so proud of all of our amazing volunteers, we simply couldn’t run the hospice without them.

Whether you have a couple of hours a week to spare or a couple of days, every single bit of support makes a difference to our patients and their families.
