Here at MercyCare our volunteers make a real difference to people’s lives. As part of National Volunteer Week it is with much enthusiasm that we pass on our sincere thanks to everyone who volunteered their time and energy during the past year.
To thank our volunteers, Coordinator, Volunteer Services organised a bus tour of MercyCare which took place on Wednesday 16 May. Over 20 volunteers enjoyed visits to our three major sites.
MercyCare volunteer and staff member, Peter Beaton said the day was a huge success and really valuable for everyone who attended.
“Volunteers heard from staff who work with clients on a day-to-day basis and how MercyCare has been shaped by the rich tradition of the Sisters of Mercy. They were touched by the way we deliver our services with genuine compassion,” he said.
Volunteering at MercyCare gives you the opportunity to interact with people from all walks of life whether it be children, youth, aged care residents, culturally and linguistically diverse clients or patients and new mums at our hospital.
