Our hospital volunteer scheme is going from strength to strength across North Wales.

The Robin volunteers (nick-named the Robins because of their bright red polo shirts) are renowned for their friendly nature and willingness to help others. In fact they have proved such a hit that more are urgently needed in our local community hospital and in North Wales Acute Hospitals.

Robins are befrienders and prepare hot and cold drinks for patients; check water jugs; spend time in general conversation; provide a reading/writing service where appropriate; go on errands to the hospital shop; assist nursing staff with bed making; help with storage of supplies and tidying patients’ lockers amongst other duties. Some Robin’s can offer a signposting service too.
