Hospital Cafe & Trolley Service

  • VO29545


Description

Café Volunteers are needed to serve refreshments to patients, staff and visitors. Being in hospital visiting friends or family can be a difficult time so volunteers offer a friendly and compassionate point of contact for our customers. Volunteers will be required to do 3 hours per shift.
This is an ideal opportunity to develop skill and experience in a hospital environment.

Trolley Volunteers are needed to help provide a trolley shop within the hospital. The trolley offers refreshments, reading material and engaging socially with the patients. Additional tasks include cash handling and reconciliation and ensuring stock is replenished and rotated
