Hospital thanks its army of volunteers with a festive brunch

The event was held to thank the volunteers for their support throughout the year, working across the trust's three hospital sites, in Doncaster, Mexborough and Worksop, with thousands of staff, patients and visitors.

Suzy Brain England OBE, chair of the board, spoke at the brunch, saying: 'We rely upon our volunteers to provide assistance where we otherwise cannot. Their compassion and dedication to the trust is impressive and appreciated. They support thousands of patients who pass through our doors every day. We always appreciate this vital contribution, especially around Christmas time, when we dedicate more time to seeing our friends and family.'
