Dersingham volunteer receives praise from Hillington hospice
A man from Dersingham has received praise from the hospice he volunteers for as a driver.
Robin Lake, aged 79 has been a volunteer at the Norfolk Hospice Tapping House, Hillington, for three years and the charity recently held an event at Knight's Hill to thank their volunteers during National Volunteering Week.
Stuart Davis, driver at the Norfolk Hospice, said: "Robin Lake is a well-liked and respected member of The Norfolk Hospice’s volunteer driver team.
"During his three years as a volunteer he has become a firm favourite with staff and patients alike and is always immaculately dressed. He has a sunny, friendly and approachable disposition.
"Always respectful and polite, he puts patients and bereaved clients at ease during a very difficult time in their lives. He has received many well deserved compliments and letters of thanks from grateful clients and patients.
"Robin is not only a driver but also goes out of his way to assist with fundraising and anything else that is required of him.
"He is always happy to take on new challenges and gives his time freely and generously.
"Robin is truly a pleasure to work with and a credit to the Norfolk Hospice."
