Where would we be without our volunteers

Next week (1st - 7th June) is Volunteer Week, a week when organisations up and down the country recognise the contribution that their volunteers make.
We at Liverpool Women's are very fortunate to have such a great team of volunteers who can always be seen working busily across the Trust, helping us to provide such a high level of service to our patients and their families. Without the assistance of our volunteers I have absolutely no doubt that we would not be able to achieve the positive results that we do.
Our volunteers play a massive role in some of the most important events on the Trust calendar. One such event is our Service of Remembrance, which was held a couple of weeks ago. The service was supported by a number of our volunteers who worked tirelessly and in difficult circumstances to ensure that those in attendance where looked after in a way befitting the occasion and the standards we set here at the Women's.
During Volunteer Week our volunteer co-ordinators will be trying to raise awareness of the volunteer team and what being a volunteer involves. They will also be trying to recruit more volunteers around and about the Trust. If you would like to become a volunteer or would like to find out more about what is involved, you can do so by visiting the 'support us' section of our website.
This Thursday, 31st May, the Trust will be holding a special indoor street party to celebrate the Queen's Jubilee. The party will have all of the traditional British trimmings, including music, flags, cakes, quizzes and a traditional British menu (I won't tell you what's on it but I will say that it sounds delicious!). The party will take place in our restaurant area between midday and 3.00pm and we're sure it's going to be a lot of fun so come along and join in!
