Volunteers needed to help with Hospice garden 

 
 

The Salisbury Hospice is looking for volunteers with an interest in gardening who can help support the team maintain the wildlife garden at the southern end of the Salisbury District Hospital site.

The garden provides a sensitive area where patients, family and friends can sit quietly outside the main Hospice building and enjoy the tranquillity and calm of a natural setting.

Elaine Willman, Volunteer Co-ordinator for the Hospice said: “Our wildlife garden has become a little overgrown and needs enthusiastic people with an interest in gardening to help prepare it for next year. Volunteers don’t need to be hugely knowledgeable as they will be supported by our team here at the Hospice.

The Hospice volunteers carry out a variety of roles from helping in the day and inpatient units and supporting recently bereaved relatives, to using their skills to provide complimentary therapies such as massage and reflexology.

Mrs Willman added: “Our volunteers find working at the Hospice very rewarding and we appreciate the enormous contribution that they make. If people are 16 and over and interested in volunteering then they are welcome to come along for an informal chat and look around the unit and garden. All our volunteers are supported and given any relevant training they need.”

Please contact Elaine Willman at elaine.willman@salisbury.nhs.uk or call 01722 425113.
