Photo: SHANE WENZLICK Rob Warner admits there's something he can't stop doing -- he's addicted to volunteering. The self-confessed volunteeraholic'' spends his spare time helping Hospice South Auckland and it reckons it needs more people like him. Once a month Rob gets behind the drinks and food trolley at the inpatient unit at Hospice South Auckland's Totara Lodge and spends a couple of hours taking meals to guests. It's really just going around with a smile on your face. Having been involved for the past three years, I have seen first hand the tremendous care and support provided to those who are sick and in need of such care at such a vital and stressful time for the family and the person in need,'' he says. And he also helps with the hospice remem- brance trees Christmas fundraiser and says it's easy to be a volunteer. By day he's a travel agent in Papakura -- his workplace supports Hos- pice South Auckland and his own volunteering is an extension of that. The hardest decision is to make the decision to give up your time.'' Hospice South Auck- land has a shortage of volunteers. Funding and marketing manager Gavin Ring says volunteers are important to household services where they welcome visitors, help with meal deliveries to patients, make beds and more. The role of a volunteer is varied and offers immense personal satis- faction, Mr Ring says. New volunteers train with experienced staff before they start regular duties. Mr Warner says people thinking about helping should know it's easy to plan their time around volunteering. Call Chris Keeling on 640-0219 for infor- mation.
