Charity makes urgent plea for volunteers

Cancer charity, Penny Brohn UK, is urgently looking for motivated and committed volunteers to join its helpline team at its National Centre in Pill, near Bristol.

The helpline team offers confidential support to people living with cancer and their close supporters by providing information and a listening ear.

Sarah Gottesman, Volunteers Manager at Penny Brohn UK, said: “We rely on the commitment and enthusiasm of our amazing volunteers to run our helpline to support people living with cancer. To reach more people and help them live as well as possible, for as long as possible, we urgently need more volunteers to help us run this vital service.”

No previous experience is necessary and full training will be provided. The helpline is open between 9.30am and 5pm, Monday to Friday. Volunteers are asked to cover a four hour session a week with some additional hours for training and attending courses.

With over 38 years’ experience, Penny Brohn UK recognises that people with cancer need more than medicine. Its Bristol Whole Life Approach provides integrated whole person cancer support that works alongside medical treatment to achieve the best health and wellbeing.

For further information, a full role description or application form email or call 01275 370 094.
