Madrugada needs volunteers

We at Madrugada did not choose our motto lightly – “Because you care, we can”. It is entirely due to you, the public, through your generosity, donations and support of Madrugada’s charity shops and fundraising events, that our clinical team is able to provide our end-of-life services free of charge.

But it is the invaluable day-to-day contribution of our wonderful volunteers across the whole of the organisation that is our life blood.

We desperately need new volunteers, and to this end we are holding a Recruitment Day at our new Lagos Homestore, from 10am to 1pm on Saturday, March 16. Our aim is to show people the different ways that they can volunteer, what commitment is necessary and to get people to sign up.

So why not come along – enjoy some tea, coffee and biscuits – and find out more about us? No experience is required, just a big heart.

In case you do not know us, at Madrugada we provide specialised end-of-life care and support for patients and their loved ones in west Algarve. Although founded only 10 years ago, we feel we have made tremendous strides and, up to the end of 2018, 136 patients and their loved ones have benefited from Madrugada’s ‘hospice at home’ service, support and counselling.

Homestore is located at Urbanização Pedra Alçada, Lote 7B Retail Unit (by Lagos Vet and opposite the Cepsa service station on the N125).
