Volunteer services development coordinator Jacqui Hookham said: “We couldn’t do what we do without our incredible volunteers who work on the wards, in the kitchen, gardens and coffee shop, with our fundraising team and in our offices.” The work done by Thorpe Hall’s volunteers saves the charity around half a million pounds every year.
