Volunteers needed at Welwyn Garden City hospital

A FEW hours of your time could help provide better facilities for hospital patients.

Around eight volunteers are wanted to help run the QE2 Hospital’s WRVS coffee shop which raises funds to enhance patient care facilities.

The local services manager, John McDonald, who runs the WGC shop, said: “We’ve had several volunteers retire over the last few months, many of these volunteers have several years service supporting the shop.

“WRVS charity shop has been at the QE2 since 1963, so we’re relying on the good will of people giving their time to volunteer so we can continue raising funds.”

Based in the outpatients ward, the store, which is open from 9.30am to 4pm Monday to Friday, sells hot and cold drinks, sandwiches, and confectionery.

“However, the duties are different for each shift, training would be given for each separate shift.
