VALIANT VOLUNTEERS: Hospital volunteer ‘heroes’ step up over lockdown in Stanmore

 Published on: 4th September 2020   |   By: Holly Bullen   |   Category: Uncategorized

The Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital in Stanmore has thanked volunteers for the work they have put in over lockdown.

The volunteer service has been running for a few years now and over lockdown they have been busy making PPE, carrying out temperature checks and much more.

Anastasia Evangelides, a volunteer co-ordinator, said they have played an integral role within the hospital.

She said: “I think the volunteers here are the unsung heroes for the number of things that they have done here.”

Anastasia added that the volunteers have gone above and beyond for the patients.

She said: “We have had patients that have not been allowed to have visitors and the volunteers have gone out of their way to bring them items such as magazines, snacks and toiletries.”

The team at the hospital will be restarting their patient trolley service and need more volunteers.

There will be a ‘Bring a Friend Along’ day on Thursday, September 24, to find out more about volunteering.
