As part of Volunteers' Week (1-7 June) volunteers at Ashford and St Peter's Hospitals came together to enjoy a special tea party, organised by the Trust as a thank-you for their hard work and dedication.

Chairman Aileen McLeish said: "At Ashford and St Peter's, we have over 320 volunteers who provide a very special service to our patients, visitors and staff. Whether it is helping people find their way around, filing and answering the phone in A&E, or visiting patients on the wards as part of the chaplaincy team, they help to bring a sense of community into our hospitals and are an integral part of our organisation."
