Our multi-award-winning Butterfly Volunteer Service relies on specially-trained volunteers to provide companionship for end-of-life patients to ensure nobody dies alone.

Without the Butterfly project, 15-20 patients were dying alone at the Lister each month and others were alone when waiting for relatives to arrive.

In order to keep this vital service running we must raise over £40,000 each year.

In June 2020 the group's outstanding compassion and dedication was recognised with the Queen's Award for Voluntary Service, the highest award given to voluntary organisations.
