"The nurses were just wonderful, giving Mum the care and support she needed so I could get the rest I needed to carry on."
Impressed by the care his mum received at Sue Ryder Thorpe Hall Hospice, Shaun decided to volunteer for the nursing team while fundraising for the hospice. "I was so grateful for what Hospice at Home did for us that I wanted to raise some money to say thank you from the bottom of my heart," Shaun explains. "But I didn’t want to go and do a bike ride or a run – I wanted the nursing team who looked after Mum to see me at Thorpe Hall doing something useful to help them."
And as Shaun discovered, our local sponsored volunteering scheme was the perfect way for him to give something back.
