Volunteer raises thousands at weekly book sale

In celebration of World Book Day, we're sharing the story of Beth Burke.

Beth, a former Antique dealer, has helped to raise £3,500 for Garden House Hospice Care by selling books that have been donated to the Hospice. Beth volunteers her time at the Hospice Distribution Centre every Thursday, where she selects books to sell at Hitchin Markets on a Friday.

Beth said: “Specialist books are very popular and sell very well - so books about cars, transport and art. I love volunteering at the Distribution Centre as I really feel that I am doing something worthwhile.”

If you'd like to find out more about volunteer opportunities at the Hospice, we'd love to hear from you! Call our HR team on 01462 679540 or click here to view our latest exciting opportunities at the hospice.
