Ashgate Hospicecare’s Jasmine Ellis-Hatton wins Young Volunteer of the Year at this year’s Chesterfield Voluntary Sector Awards

Ashgate Hospicecare is proud to announce that Jasmine Ellis-Hatton, a volunteer at the Hospice’s Ashgate Coffee Co in Clowne, won ‘Young Volunteer of the Year’ at this year’s Chesterfield Voluntary Sector Awards.

The awards, which took place on 4th October at the Pomegranate Theatre, is now in its fifth year of celebrating individuals and organisations who have made an outstanding contribution to volunteering in the area.

Sally Barnett, Manager of Ashgate Coffee Co in Clowne, said: ‘We are so proud of Jasmine for winning the Young Volunteer of the Year award. Jasmine brings a smile and positive attitude to work every single day and is an absolute pleasure to be around. Without her and all the other amazing volunteers who support us we simply couldn’t do our jobs.

The evening showcased the fantastic ways in which volunteers support our community and to recognise their contributions, so it was fitting that Jasmine took home an award on behalf of Ashgate Hospicecare.

Matt Corbishley, Director of People and Performance, said: “What a fantastic achievement for Jasmine to win Young Volunteer of the Year. Jasmine thoroughly deserves this award for her incredible support and commitment she provides on a day to day basis at the Ashgate Coffee Co in Clowne.

Volunteers are such a vital support service to the Hospice and without them we simply wouldn’t be able to provide the care and support for patients and their families across North Derbyshire when they need it the most.”
