On Sunday 3rd February Milly Toner and Immogen Salt from Butterwick Hospice in Bishop Auckland visited the Aycliffe Radio Station studio to talk to Mary and John about the Hospice and how people deal with grief.
Butterwick Hospice discussed the misconceptions people have of a Hospice. They clarified all the different services Butterwick Hospice provide in the local area.
Butterwick have a day care service, and out reach centre, along with family support, home care and much more. They explained to Mary and John about their experience working in Butterwick and how important volunteers are to the Hospice. The work Butterwick Hospice does could not be done without the volunteers. John, from the radio station is a volunteer Counsellor with Butterwick Hospice and he explained the challenges he has come across over the last year and a half, along with the vast rewards the voluntary job comes with.
