Treetops Hospice Care presented 14 volunteers and four members of staff with long-service awards whose contribution to the charity totals 340 years, including Bramcote’s Geoff Saville.
Treetops provide nursing care and emotional support for adults with life-limiting conditions living in Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire.
Geoff, aged 78, has volunteered for the hospice for 20 years and works at the Treetops charity shop based on Bramcote Lane in Wollaton.
He said: “I feel like I’m helping people and doing something for others.
“You can actually see the result of what you’re doing and know that there are people who come to the hospice and receive great support and help, as well as their family and friends. It’s quite amazing.
“We’re a lovely group and very welcoming and if you live in the Wollaton area.
“It’s even better because you meet people you know that come into the shop and chat to them. The shop really is at the heart of the Bramcote area.”
Imogen Hopkins, volunteer services co-ordinator, said: “Treetops really has grown out of the love of volunteers.
“It’s such an amazing opportunity to be able to recognise these fantastic lengths of service and to really thank these individuals for everything they have done for the organisation over the years.
“Volunteering for Treetops is something that anyone can do, however much or little time you have to give.
“We would be delighted to hear from anyone who would like to join the charity in a voluntary capacity at this extremely exciting time.”
