Len Anthony started volunteering for the finance and supporter care team at Havens Hospices in 2015.
Len explains “I was inspired to join Havens Hospices by my niece who volunteered for the charity at the time. I joined the finance and supporter care team and haven’t looked back since.
“I help the team by helping to maintain the supporter database, so I add new supporters or update existing information. It may not sound that exciting, but I love it, I have been retired for nearly 14 years so coming in once a week is so lovely. I really enjoy spending time with the fantastic people who work in the team and across the organisation, it’s like a big family at Havens Hospices and I love being part of the family!
“I think nowadays we really only do things to get something back, I’ve certainly been guilty of that. Through volunteering I have learnt how nice it is to do something where you don’t expect anything - the reward is certainly greater. I’d often heard the most precious thing that you can give in life is your time and I’ve found it apt to do just that in the act of volunteering”.
