The sun was shining as a group of 13 students got stuck in to removing unwanted plants at the entrance of The Norfolk Hospice, Tapping House in Hillington. The students – pictured above – each dedicated 30 hours of volunteering as part of the National Citizen Service (NCS), which helps those aged 16 and 17 to develop personal and social skills, ready for the world of work.
They had selected The Norfolk Hospice, Tapping House as their chosen charity, as one of the students had known someone who received support from the hospice.
Mark Shea, commercial director at The Norfolk Hospice said, “The students did a fantastic job and we really do appreciate them selecting us as their chosen charity. It would be impossible for the Hospice to continue to help the people it does without the active involvement of enthusiastic volunteers like these. They have made a real difference to the grounds around the hospice and they seemed to really enjoy themselves too”.
The Norfolk Hospice, Tapping House offers a variety of volunteering opportunities available to individuals and groups of all ages. For more details contact Davina (volunteer co-ordinator) on 01485 601700.
