Volunteers at Hinchingbrooke Hospital, in Huntingdon, were treated to an afternoon tea to thank them for their support.
The Hospital Voluntary Services Department hosted the event, which coincided with the 30th national Volunteers Week, to mark the contribution of people who give up their spare time to help others.
Hinchingbrooke chief executive Hisham Abdel-Rahman thanked the hospital’s volunteers, of which there are more than 100, for supporting the hospital and its patients.
The tea was the culmination of a week of activities at the main reception, which included visits from Pets as Therapy, Red Cross therapists offering neck and shoulder massages, as well as groups including Diabetes UK, Age UK, Care Network, Acorn, Home Hospice, Macmillan, Alzheimer’s UK and Hunts Blind Society.
