ST RICHARD’S Hospice volunteer Eunice Williams has won the ‘Platinum Champion’ award for her exceptional dedication to the charity.
Eunice was one of the first volunteers at St Richard’s when it first began in Droitwich Spa in 1984 and continues to help out today.
Since joining the hospice she has been a head volunteer gardener, a receptionist and helped with many fundraisers.
She has also inspired many other people to volunteer at St Richard’s, including her husband Ron.
Eunice said: “I’m honoured to be named as a Platinum Champion.
“This award is in recognition of all the work volunteers do for the hospice.
“I have made great friendships and had lots of fun, being a volunteer at St Richard’s adds to my life.”
The awards were established by the Royal Voluntary Service to honour the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.
The hospice’s staff and volunteer engagement officer Claire Watkins added: “We are thrilled that Eunice has won this award.
“Over the years Eunice has taken on a wide range of voluntary roles with wonderful grace and enthusiasm displaying a natural empathy with everyone she meets.
“Eunice is inspirational. Her friendly face and compassionate manner immediately put people at ease – in an environment where they may initially be anxious.
“She is one of those truly special people that are making a real difference in our communities with their kindness and generosity.”
