Meet Jamie, our Corporate Fundraiser

Having grown up in Willen, the Hospice was the first charity I ever knew of. As a result, I feel extremely lucky to be able to work here, and to help businesses find a way of engaging with the Hospice that works for them and their staff. If you or your team are interested in any of the opportunities to get involved below, then it would be great to hear from you.”

If you would like to arrange a volunteering day or you have more ideas on raising funds or getting involved, contact jamie.walsh@willen-hospice.org.uk and have a chat.
