Volunteer Gardener

Do you have an eye for irises or a particularity for poppies? Why not come and join our volunteer gardening team?

What are we looking for?

We are looking for volunteers that enjoy being part of a team keeping our grounds surrounding the Hospice looking beautiful so that our families can enjoy them. You will need a good level of fitness, be available on Friday mornings on a weekly basis and have suitable protective clothing. The team of volunteers are a friendly bunch and as well as being busy weeding, digging, pruning and planting they take a well deserved tea break sharing homemade cake and biscuits. A great opportunity to meet new people with a shared love of horticulture and creating a beautiful area for all to enjoy.

What do we provide?

For this role we provide:

  • Induction training
  • Eye guards and knee pads can be provided
  • Suitable boots with ankle support should be worn but can be provided by the Hospice if you do not have any
  • 20% off in all St Peter & St James Charity Shops


St Peter & St James Hospice has a large community of volunteers who we really value and love to hear from. We regularly hold volunteer forums and try to organise get togethers when possible.
