Heathcote Health turned the spotlight onto its volunteers on Thursday as part of National Volunteer Week.

Chief executive Dan Douglass praised the work the many volunteers did at the hospital.

‘‘You help make it a better place,’’ he said.

Clinical care director Di Kenyon presented National Volunteer Week medals to all of the volunteers at morning tea on Thursday and highlighted the variety of areas in which they were active.

Some of the hospital’s volunteers help with patients and residents, some deliver meals on wheels, others are enthusiastic members of the garden committee, assist with fundraising initiatives or donate their skills to assist the health service with its day to day activities, such as helping out with the website.

More volunteers are always needed, contact Linda Barrow on 54310900 for more information.
