“Volunteering with St Luke’s Hospice has enabled me to develop not only a specific set of skills that have helped to enrich my degree, but has also developed me as a person. I would encourage people to volunteer as it is a very rewarding activity and the ways in which you can volunteer are endless. There is a volunteer role for everyone!” Sam McNicholas, St Luke’s Volunteer 2012-13. Click here to read about what Sam got up to with St Luke’s.
