Bloomhill receives no ongoing government funding and is operated by a team of dedicated staff and volunteers.
Bloomhill Manger of Volunteer Services, Alexsandra Bert said the charity was keen to boost the number of active volunteers across most roles at Bloomhill.
“Volunteers are at the heart of Bloomhill and contribute enormously to the community by enabling us to provide a high level of care to its growing number of clients,” Ms Bert said.
Bloomhill is seeking volunteers to work in its Op Shops at Maroochydore, Mooloolaba, Caloundra, Cooroy and Nambour, as well as its Distribution Centre at Kunda Park. Traffic Managers at the Cotton Tree Markets on Sunday mornings and volunteer drivers for trips to Brisbane are also needed.
“We would love to have some more volunteers to help out on Saturday mornings at the Op Shops as well as around the Bloomhill Centre in Buderim,” Ms Bert said.
Bloomhill provides support and assistance to those affected by cancer and their families throughout the Sunshine Coast, offering 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.
