DEDICATED volunteers have been recognised by Myton Hospice.
More than 90 people who given their time freely in the charity’s shops, hospices and inpatient units were celebrated at Wolston Leisure and Community Centre during the hospice’s long service awards.
One of those who was thanked was Valary Ormerod, who has spent 25 years at the charity’s Kenilworth shop.
She said: “We wanted to make a charity donation through a collection at my daughter’s funeral and it went to Myton in the end. The shop in Kenilworth was just opening so I decided to help out – I’ve been volunteering on a Thursday afternoon ever since.”
And head of volunteering Charlotte Witteridge says the volunteers help keep the service running.
She said: “At Myton we have more than 1,000 volunteers who kindly give their time to enable us to continue to support people with terminal and life limiting illnesses and their families in Coventry and Warwickshire.
“This year we have presented more than 90 of our dedicated volunteers with a long service award, some of whom have been with Myton for over 25 years.
“We are incredibly thankful to all of our fantastic volunteers for their continued support.”
