The Importance of Volunteers for Hospices and Charities – Daves of the Week Radio Show.

The Importance of Volunteers for Hospices and Charities – Daves of the Week Radio Show.

On our latest show we look at how important volunteers are for hospices specifically and for charities in general. We have interviews from both of our featured charities Princess Alice Hospice and St Catherine’s Hospice. The first is with Giles Tomsett – CEO and Dr Patricia Brayden from St Catherine’s Hospice. The second is with Zoe Byrne – Volunteer Manager at Princess Alice Hospice. We ask (and answer) the question of ‘If you were made Prime Minister tomorrow, what would you do?’. We also give our thoughts on why volunteering is so important, Dave S gives his top eight reasons to volunteer and we play some good music as well. Please feel free to comment if you listen to the show.

About davidmbeecroft

Hello and welcome to my blog. Please feel free to have an explore. My name is David Beecroft. I am 38 years old. I co-founded and ran a small scale touring theatre company called Screwed & Clued in 1998. I went on to tour the Canadian Fringe Theatre Festival circuit over the following five years. I have written six original plays, the last ‘The Poe Show’ won a Best in Fest award at the 2014 Ottawa Fringe Festival. I worked in a social care setting for ten years and now work in a special needs school. I have sent my first novel off to agents and considering self-publishing if that does not work. I co-host a radio show on Surrey Hills Community Radio called Daves of the Week where we feature charities for a six week period. I live with my fiance and two pet Degus. I started this blog when suffering from depression and attending therapy, so a large part of this blog was about my experience and thoughts of that. Since then I am in a much better place and I write about life after depression and how I stay (or try to) ahead of it happening again. I also like to look at the happier sides of life and try to put a positive spin on serious subjects.
