AXA Help us Beat the Mountain

Last week 12 AXA employees joined our retail team, spending a day volunteering to help us ‘beat the mountain’ of stock we currently have in our warehouse. The warehouse allows us to store and prepare stock for our charity shops. In helping to sort through our winter stock the volunteers have provided great support in enabling us to deliver the most income possible to the Hospice. The volunteers worked as a team to achieve this and had many laughs along the way too.

Clearing space in the warehouse also allows us to prepare for more donations which is vital in keeping the shops running. All donations help us to ensure that our care will always be free to patients, families and carers.

The day was hugely successful, so much so that further teams are joining us on 10th August! Thank you to AXA for supporting us in this way.

This is one example of the many varied ways in which volunteers provide vital support for Hospice in the Weald. Volunteers are vital in allowing us to ensure that 90p in each £1 donated is spent directly on patient care. For more information on the huge range of volunteering opportunities available, please click here.
