Film premiere to celebrate our volunteers

Posted on in Hospitals

A film premiere with a difference will be held in the atrium at The James Cook University Hospital to celebrate the work of our volunteers.

Staff, patients and visitors are all invited to a special Christmas event on Wednesday (18 December), featuring the first showing of the trust’s “12 days of volunteering” film.

The short piece, celebrating the major contribution volunteers make to the success of the organisation, not only stars the trust’s volunteers but has been made entirely by them and following its premiere will be available to view on the trust’s website.

Other events are also planned between 3pm and 5pm including advice on how to have a healthy winter, the opportunity to pick up a Christmas survival guide and a children’s craft corner.

Alternatively visitors can enjoy a glass of a mulled berry drink and a mince pie, relax with a hand massage or listen to carols from a local choir.

A special service will also be taken by the trust’s chaplain Malcolm Masterman at 4pm, incorporating Macmillan Cancer Research’s annual Christmas tree memorial messages and people can also write their own messages to add to the Christmas tree in support of South Tees Hospitals Charity.
