Charity looking to recruit volunteers

OVERGATE Hospice is asking for people who have some time to spare to come forward and help make 2012 a bigger year than ever.

Tracey Broadbent, senior retail co-ordinator, said: “We rely on volunteers to support the work done by the hospice and nowhere are they more needed than in our 11 charity shops.

“We have shops throughout Calderdale and our team of volunteers are hard working, dedicated and very passionate about the hospice. We owe a great deal to all our volunteers. We would not be able to run our shops without them and all the shop managers appreciate them.”

Weekend volunteers are needed in Todmorden and Hebden Bridge.

Angie Glenn, who volunteers in Todmorden, said: “I volunteer because it’s such a great cause and you can see where the money raised is going. I also volunteer with such a great team who are good fun.”

Anybody aged over 16 who would like to volunteer can contact Tracey Broadbent on 01422 387117 or Colleen Brown on 01422 387145 for more information.
