In honour of volunteers

I took this lovely photos of Mom and Dad wearing their new Hospice Volunteer shirts. They both look so happy and proud in them (yes, Dad your chest is puffed out :) )

About 6-9 months ago, they both began doing volunteer work in a local bookshop to support a local Hospice care house - where guests who are terminal can be cared for. This wonderful fortnightly activity has introduced them to another world of friends, company and people and they contribute with their wonderful joy and friendship as well as their time.

Through this Christmas period they are selling Christmas baubles and messages to hang on a Christmas tree, to remember those who have passed on, or just are not with us today. It is a lovely idea and helps bring in much needed funds.

So to my parents and to all volunteers, I dedicate this post. You do a wonderful job and I am so proud of you.
