Staff members at Northampton General Hospital were lucky enough to join in with birthday celebrations of long serving volunteer, Gillian Welch, who has celebrated her 90th Birthday while volunteering at her regular spot on the Billing Road entrance welcome desk. Staff at the hospital joined together to wish Gillian a happy birthday, share birthday cake and a present a gift.

Gillian has volunteered for Northampton General Hospital since the year 2000, when her partner encouraged her to join as a volunteer, Gillian said “I was always concerned and nervous when visiting the hospital, and if I’m completely honest, not much has changed. But volunteering has certainly improved my confidence.
