Will you volunteer at Ashgate in 2021?

The support our volunteers provide across the organisation is immeasurable, whatever their role. Without our volunteers, there would be so much we would struggle to do. We have many different roles available. If you are interested in a volunteer role at Ashgate Hospicecare, please get in touch with us. We’d love to hear from you!

Rob's story

I don't know how to put into words how much the Hospice helped my entire family.

Carol Suter from Killamarsh was diagnosed with ovarian cancer in October 2011. In November, she had part of her stomach lining removed and had a hysterectomy. By December, she had recovered from surgery and had her first chemotherapy session, but a week later a major stroke left her paralysed and unable to speak. Carol was admitted to hospital and was given a life expectancy of just six months. It was at this point that a palliative care nurse at the hospital suggested a transfer to Ashgate Hospicecare. Carol's son Rob explains how the Hospice made the harrowing experience of losing his mum bearable.
