Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

And down by Kosciusko, where the pine-clad ridges raise
Their torn and rugged battlements on high,
Where the air is clear as crystal, and the white stars fairly blaze
At midnight in the cold and frosty sky…

Banjo Patterson, The Man from Snowy River

Thanks for being part of VolunteerHub in 2017 and all the best for Christmas and the New Year.

High mountains evoke isolation. Their torn and rugged battlements stand in mute, stoic testimony to the passing of life, breathing their cold and frosty sky.

People are not mountains, but sometimes they think they should be. From the time of diagnosis some carers can experience isolation, feeling torn and embattled but choosing to silently endure the icy, roaring winds and the splitting rocks of grief and loss.

Having good support can make all the difference. Palliative care volunteers support people and their loved ones at or near the end of life.

If you are interested in becoming a palliative care volunteer or learning more about volunteering in 2018 please email us, subscribe to our eNews or contact your local palliative care volunteer service.
