Recently Baking From the Heart Bendigo volunteers got together to pack and deliver sweet treats for patients in Bendigo Hospice and palliative care and day hospice families at Bendigo Health.
Brightening everyone's day
The volunteers bake goods at home and come together to create the boxes to be delivered so that patients have some yummy treats for themselves or alternatively ready for friends and family that may visit, brightening their day and taking some stress away. Over the weekend 20 boxes were created.
One family to receive a goodies box was Sam Vanin and his daughter Marie Schroeder (pictured with Bendigo Health’s Hospice Manager Melinda Linguey).
This is just another great example of how community partnerships allow opportunities for volunteering in a different way which benefits patients, families, staff and volunteers alike. Everyone is looking forward to the next delivery. Sharon Walsh, Director, Volunteer Services, Bendigo Health.
