Airedale Hospital volunteers honoured at special event
A special event will be held on Tuesday to say thank you to more than 350 people who volunteer at Airedale Hospital.
Andrew Catto, executive medical director for Airedale NHS Foundation Trust, officially thanked the volunteers for all their hard work and commitment they show to the hospital.
He said: “More people than ever before came forward to work as volunteers in Airedale Hospital last year. They have dedicated an enormous number of hours of their free time to support the hospital. We can never thank them enough for the work they do for us.”
Most of the volunteers belong to either Friends of Airedale or Airedale New Venture, two charities that support the hospital and which run shops there.
The hospital’s two charities and voluntary services will be having a stall at the public open day on Thursday to let visitors know more about their work.
