When Chris Banfi’s friend asked her if she would be interested in joining her for a few hours per week in the newly formed eBay department, she felt it was the perfect opportunity to give something back.

“St Luke’s helped me at a time when I needed it so I was more than happy to reciprocate,” said Chris.

“Knowing you are making a difference is really motivating; our eBay department has grown rapidly and raises a considerable amount of profit for the Hospice each year – it’s great to be a part of something so special.”

Chris particularly enjoys meeting up with her friends each week whilst being able to help St Luke’s.

“I would really encourage others who have a bit of time on their hands to volunteer. There are so many opportunities across the Hospice, there’s bound to be something to suit and challenge you and extra pairs of hands are always welcome!”
