Claire McLaughlin decided to become a volunteer at Wirral Hospice St John’s six years ago. She was already volunteering at Claire House and for the Katie Piper Foundation but wanted to help something she was really passionate about.
Claire’s mum was an oncology nurse at Clatterbridge. “She is the most caring person I have ever met in my life and adored her job. She had to retire due to ill health and I wanted to carry on her good work by giving something back to help people who are critically ill and need extra support.”
Claire works full time as a PA to a Headteacher / Clerk to Governors and Human Resources for a school.
“I volunteer for as many shifts as I possibly can for the Hospice, helping out on the main reception and with general duties. I adore my work at Wirral Hospice and have met the most amazing people ever. I would do more if I could!
