Tessa Grimes

I started volunteering with the Hospital Foundation in April 2020 and I have loved being a part of such a vibrant and supportive community. I work in communications but wanted to use my writing skills in a way that gives back to people in need so I joined the marketing and media team. If you have considered volunteering at all in the past, do not hesitate to give it a go at the Foundation and join one of the best organisations with some of the most interesting and beautiful people!” – Tessa

Volunteering with the Hospital Foundation and completing an Internship with their Media & Communications Team at university gave me the career head start I needed to land my first job. Now, I’m the Marketing Manager of the Foundation.” – Brendan

Libby the Volunteer

“I started Volunteering at the Hospital Museum as I didn’t want to just sit at home, I wanted to do something meaningful and as a volunteer, I could contribute to society and my local community. Volunteering gives you a sense of contributing to both society and your local community; it’s a very worthwhile job. If others share the same passion, we’re always on the lookout for people to join us!” – Libby

“I wanted to make myself useful, so I started Volunteering with the Foundation at the Hospital. I enjoy socializing and working in our great team. Helping others out and giving a hand when someone needs is so rewarding. If anyone asks me if I would recommend the Foundation, it’s a definite yes!” – Sovanna
