Hospice volunteers raise R26 000

Stepping Stone Hospice volunteers stepped up to the plate when they raised no less than R26 000 for the hospice through the hosting of their Volunteers Tea on Saturday February 18, 2017 in the Alberton Methodist Church hall.

Under the guidance of volunteer Irene Barnard, and with the help of hospice staff and Kobie van Wyk from the Alberton Methodist Church, 180 ladies were entertained and spoilt with some good music, good food and loads of fun and laughter.

Volunteers Rina Mulder and Debbie Welman both said that they were amazed at the kindness of so many ladies getting together and giving to a good cause. Their fellow volunteers agreed and added that volunteering for Stepping Stone Hospice is an extremely humble, yet satisfying experience.

“I am so proud of these ladiesand what they have achieved today,” said Tersia Burger, CEO of the organization. “Such a dynamic group with hearts of gold!”

In speaking to volunteer leader, Kia Bierman, it soon becomes clear that the pool of 25 Stepping Stone Hospice volunteers are extremely dedicated to their task. “To be a volunteer at Stepping Stone Hospice, you act in selflessness and give freely of your time to execute the tasks given to you by management. For us, it is an absolute privilege to be part of this great organization,” she says.
