Volunteer in Our 40th Anniversary Year!

However much time you have to spare, you can make a difference… all whilst learning new skills and meeting new people!

St Gemma’s Hospice is the largest hospice in Yorkshire and we have provided care, compassion and dignity to local people for 40 years. We couldn’t do this every year without the generosity of our community of volunteers who selflessly give their time.
