Volunteers Deliver A Lifeline

Page 12 13 Emergency Response Team

Throughout the pandemic, our dedicated volunteers donated thousands of hours to support our work in communities across Scotland.

As always, the kindess of our volunteers shone through the dark days, filling us with hope and determination to be there for our young patients, their families and our NHS heroes. 

Our volunteers have been by our side every step of the way through this challenging year, helping with a range of activities from: 

  • Joining our Emergency Response Team to support the relief effort across NHSGGC
  • Continuing to greet families and patients arriving at the hospital as our much-loved Welcome Guides, with a friendly smile behind their masks and socially distanced support
  • Helping with office based fundraising activities to ensure we could continue raising as much as possible for those who need us
  • Driving across the country supporting our crucial hospital services including the CD Treat service which supports young patients living with Crohn’s disease by delivering their specialist diet straight to their homes, and our Donor Milk Bank providing life-nurturing donor breast milk to Scotland's premature babies.

“As a Volunteer Driver, I’ve been making essential trips throughout lockdown to make sure vulnerable babies still have access to the donor breast milk. The people you get to meet are incredible and I’m really proud to be a part of such an important team during this pandemic.”

Our work through the pandemic would not have been possible without our incredible team of volunteers who sit at the very heart of Glasgow Children's Hospital Charity. To everyone who gave their time and dedication during our most challenging year, thank you.
