Fay and Michael Hirst are two of our Volunteers in the Gosford Family Room. They have been with us for 5 ½ years. They chose the Family Room because the charity had such a good reputation in the community, and were delighted when the Family Room was opened.
These two Volunteers have so much empathy and compassion for the parents of sick children and they love to devote some of their spare time to the guests and to their needs.
Fay and Michael find that welcoming our families into the Room is rewarding and a huge privilege and they are very aware of the need to allow dignity to our guests regardless of culture and background. As long as they have personal comfort, warmth and something to eat, then Fay and Michael are happy.
They both intend to continue as Volunteers in the Family Room for as long as they can, and look forward to many more years of service.
