This is Barbara Kelly, one of our fantastic volunteers. Barbara has volunteered in our coffee shop at Heald Green since September 2015.
Barbara loves tea and likes it not too strong with no sugar.
Barbara’s husband Brian passed away at the hospice last year so she knows the importance of the coffee shop for relatives of patients who use it on a regular basis.
The coffee shop is so important for relatives, it is a space where they can take a break and have a cup of tea. When my husband was in the hospice I often spoke to the coffee shop volunteer and it really helped to have someone to chat to. Barbara Kelly, Coffee Shop Volunteer
Barbara loves volunteering at the hospice and often receives thank you cards from our patient’s relatives thanking her for taking the time to chat to them at a very difficult time in their lives.
This is why St Ann’s Hospice is so important and why your Time for Tea event really will make a difference!
