Volunteers were given the greenlight to recommence duties following further easing of COVID-19 restrictions across the state, with staff, patients and visitors delighted with their return.

“After 10 months away due to the pandemic, we’re so happy to see their smiling faces around our hospitals and healthcare facilities again, even if they are behind masks,” a CCLHD spokesperson said.

“We are so lucky to have so many dedicated and passionate volunteers.

“In fact, many of them insisted on continuing to support our patients and staff remotely during the height of the pandemic, creating dementia fiddle blankets, knitting teddies for our young patients and sewing palliative care bags at home.

“They are now back and we could not be happier.

“Thank you to all of our volunteers for their unwavering support, care and commitment.”
