In support of Voluntary Action Rotherham’s ‘Count me in’ campaign, The Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust (TRFT) welcomed Counsellor Mahroof Hussain MBE as a volunteer for the afternoon.
Counsellor Hussain volunteered for the Trust last week, working alongside Volunteers as a Welcomer in the hospital’s main entrance.
He said: “Volunteering is a fantastic way to give something back to the community. It is a great contribution to local organisations and if everyone gave just a small amount of their time, it would make our communities better places to live.
“I volunteered at Rotherham Hospital as I am an ambassador of its charity’s Dr Ted’s Children’s Appeal and it was a great opportunity to be able to help people coming in and out of the hospital.”
Joanne Farey, Voluntary Services Coordinator at TRFT, said: “It was a pleasure to have Mahroof as our guest volunteer for the ‘Count me in’ campaign and he carried out his role as a Welcomer with ease. The volunteers enjoyed showing him around and our patients responded well to his warm and friendly approach. We would be happy to invite him back again in the future.” Counsellor Mahroof Hussain MBE with TRFT’s Volunteer Coordinator, Joanne Farey, the Rotherham Volunteer Centre Manager, Julie Adamson and Welcome Desk Volunteers.
