Newham people urged to volunteer as hospice friends

Volunteers are needed for a bereavement service in Newham that links two hospices – Richard House in Beckton and St Joseph’s in Hackney – with health units.

Volunteers will be trained, and supported in a flexible programme after committing a few hours per week over a minimum of six months.
