‘When you’ve got time, try and put a little bit back’ – a motto fundraising volunteer Margie Freeman lives by.
Between looking after grandchildren, gardening and cruising around the world it’s hard to see how she has any time to ‘put a little bit back’ let alone the four days a week she dedicates to the Hospice. A Hospice volunteer for seven years, she now volunteers at two Hospice charity shops (which she has been with since they opened), the Fundraising Office, the Hospice Gift Shop, the Hospice lottery team, not to mention tonnes of events throughout the year – she must have a time machine!
When asked about all her volunteering, Margie just shrugs and says she likes to be busy and that she can think of nowhere better than Wirral Hospice St John’s to give something back.
There’s not much else you need to know, always there when you need her – Margie Freeman, hospice hero.
