Volunteer Open Day

We’re hosting a special open day at the hospice! Check out our beautiful new building and gardens, and learn more about our unique volunteering opportunities.

Saturday 16th June. 10am – 3pm.
Skanda Vale Hospice, Saron, Llandysul, SA44 5DY.

Two years ago we opened our doors to our first overnight hospice guests. There have been some beautiful moments, and some of the stories from the people we’ve helped have been quite overwhelming. So it’s time to push things forward.

Late last year we expanded our current inpatient respite service from five days a month to ten. (Soon we hope to go even further, by expanding to 24/7 respite and end of life care).

It might not sound much, but logistically it’s a big step, and one which will require lots more helpers and volunteers.
