Cavell Nurses' Trust Trust is always looking for enthusiastic volunteers to help spread the word about Cavell Nurses' Trust or work on specific projects. Could you spare a few hours to help them out to support nurses in need?
Cavell Nurses' Trust is Edith Cavell's legacy, a charity set up in her name that, nowadays, supports nurses, midwives and healthcare assistants suffering hardship. They provide support for UK nurses, midwives and healthcare assistants, both working and retired, when they’re suffering personal or financial hardship – often because of illness, disability, domestic abuse and the effects of older age. "We’re a charity, and we help people at no cost to them. We give a listening ear and practical support to everyone who asks for help."
Mya helped out at Cavell Nurses' Trust offices
"I am currently studying for my A-levels and after that I would like to pursue my dream career of becoming a nurse; this is why I joined the Cavell Nurses' Trust on my work experience week, in which I have gained office skills and independent research abilities.
"I have enjoyed my time at Cavell Nurses' Trust, the people are extremely helpful, positive and friendly, and they have welcomed me into their charity, in which I am greatly thankful for."
Sabrina took part in a bucket collection at Birmingham New Street
"Collecting at Birmingham New Street Station for Cavell Nurses’ Trust was such a brilliant experience it will stay with me forever. I was helping to support nurses, midwives and healthcare assistants in their time of need. This really touched me as I am a student nurse so I really wanted to raise as much money as I possibility could.
"I love volunteering and going the extra mile to raise awareness as I believe everyone can change someone else’s life for the better.
"I’m always being told I am a happy and smiley person but for members of the public to tell me to “keep up the hard work” and “carry on smiling” is really astonishing! I found it surprising that from just a few hours of volunteering my confidence grew so much and I went from an empty bucket to a heavy bucket of donations quite quickly.
"Volunteering is something I would definitely do again. It was such a great experience considering it’s my first time volunteering for Cavell Nurses’ Trust and I received great support and from the team which is amazing."
