The Volunteer Day will be held on Thursday, 16 May at the Bloomhill Cancer Help Centre, Ballinger Road, Buderim and invites Bloomhill’s volunteers to come together to celebrate the spirit of voluntarism.
Bloomhill Manger of Volunteer Services, Alexsandra Bert said the Volunteer Day was about acknowledging the volunteers for their commitment and support not only to Bloomhill, but also to those living with cancer on the Sunshine Coast.
“Volunteers are at the heart of Bloomhill and without them, the charity would not be able to continue to provide the high level of care to its growing number of clients,” Ms Bert said.
The Volunteer Day will begin at 10am with a workshop on Compassion Fatigue, followed by morning tea, a Share and Support Group Discussion, sausage sizzle and concluding with an afternoon meditation session.
“The day’s activities are focused on providing practical skills to the volunteers that they can apply both in their volunteer roles and also in their personal lives,” Ms Bert said.
Bloomhill Cancer Help is a Sunshine Coast based charity that provides support and assistance to those affected by cancer. Operated by a team of dedicated staff and hundreds of volunteers, Bloomhill offers counselling, transport to appointments, respite care and a range of complementary therapies and other practical help.
“Volunteering is a great way to give back to the community and can be really rewarding, knowing you have made a difference in the lives of others,” Ms Bert said.
