Could you be a Marie Curie Helper?

Marie Curie are looking for dedicated volunteers for their Helper and Companion Services in Somerset.  The Helper Service offers emotional and practical support to people in your area living with a terminal illness.  This includes visiting them at home, going out with them, or talking to them over the phone.  The Companion Service is based at Musgrove Park Hospital in Taunton and offers one-to-one support for patients and their carers in their final days or hours of life. These volunteers give around three hours each week and provide companionship, comfort and emotional support for people on the hospital wards as well as family and friends who are visiting them. All services are completely free to the terminally ill person and full training and travelling expenses are given for all volunteers. If you are interested please phone 08003047400 or email southwesthelper@mariecurie.org.uk
