Volunteering for Pilgrims Hospice

Whilst our corporate charity partner is Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH), we are also keen to support all the charity work and fundraising individuals do for causes close to their hearts.

Kim Buckley, Axis Group Business Support Team Manager, based in our Sidcup office, shares the work she has been doing with local Pilgrims Hospice in Ashford, Kent:

"I am a volunteer Complimentary Therapist for our local Pilgrims Hospice in Ashford, Kent where I give a couple of hours at the weekend to go and give patients plus their family/friends some complimentary therapy which could be Reiki or hand/feet massage. I love it and i'm happy to support the Pilgrims Hospice following their excellent care of my dad before he died and also a close friend more recently. This is something I have done for the last 2 years.

I am also in the process of becoming a “Befriender” for Age UK. This will involve me donating an hour a week to an elderly person to chat to on phone or in person to give them a “buddy” and some support during the week. I have experienced loneliness and all that accompanies it and I hate the thought of someone else feeling like that! This is just a small 'give back' to help where I can."

We have amazing people working at Axis and we want to hear about all the great things they are doing to support and fundraise for charity! Email to share your story.
