Children’s Hospice South West (CHSW) is holding a Volunteers Week from October 1-7.

This year’s theme is to highlight its volunteers’ star qualities and the different skills they choose to share with the charity.

Volunteers play an important role in so many aspects of CHSW – from gardeners, cooks and office staff to event marshals, shop helpers and bed makers.

The charity, which is based in Charlton Farm, has more than 700 volunteers.

There are lots of ways to get involved and the charity is always looking for more people to support children with life-limiting conditions and their families.

During the week, people are invited to get in touch with the charity to find out more about volunteering.
