  • Supporting people facing life-threatening illness: Volunteer with the Brigitte Trust  -  When cancer, or any life-threatening illness, is diagnosed it can be really hard to share the emotional burden – especially to family.  A Brigitte Trust volunteer visits weekly,  building a relationship and the chance to share time together as well as offering practical help like transport, shopping or the chance to get out of the house for a break – for the person who is ill as well as for their carer.  Having time together on a regular basis with someone outside the family circle can make a real difference and lighten the load.   Please call Ingrid on 01306 881816 and visit www.brigittetrust.org/volunteering.
