Hospicecare awarded for dedication to training

WESTON Hospicecare has been awarded for its ‘Commitment to Training within the Voluntary Sector’.

It received the honour as part of Weston College’s Excellence in Business Training Awards 2010.

The hospice has been working closely with the college’s Business Enterprise Centre for several years to enable staff and volunteers to gain the relevant skills and qualifications needed for their roles.

Tracey Chinn, head of human resources, said: “This award really reflects the dedication and commitment that our staff and volunteers have to Weston Hospicecare.

“Without our volunteers we simply would not be able to function to support the patients that come through our doors every day, we are extremely lucky to have such a loyal group of people.”
