I’m a volunteer with Pilgrim’s Hospice, and I’m truly happy to share my story. I’ve been coming here for the past three-and-a-half years. I play guitar, sing and tell stories, and try to bring some joy to clients. It certainly brings me a great deal of joy! When I consider the value of volunteers in Canada I think back to being a youngster – I can’t recall all of those people who volunteered their time and services for events while I was growing up. It’s an absolute necessity – it provides harmony. You become less judgemental, helps you appreciate others, and to accept things as they are. One can take from the well, but one should also give back!
