Volunteers Week 2022

Events were held at both Conquest Hospital and Eastbourne District General Hospital this week to thank all our volunteers as part of National Volunteer’s Week, which ran from 1 June to 7 June.

The week was a chance to recognise and thank volunteers for all their hard work – our volunteers fulfil a variety of roles that support the everyday running of our hospitals.

The events were the first volunteer events since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic and we celebrated with tea and cakes, thank you cards and with long service certificates being presented.

We have a varied group of volunteers at the Trust, some that have been with us for a long time and some who have not been in since the start of the pandemic and wanted to reconnect with a view to returning. 45 people attended over the day and it was a great chance for them to meet other volunteers and discuss their different roles and experiences.
