BROMSGROVE’S Primrose hospice was visited by MP Sajid Javid to celebrate a nationwide event held in appreciation of volunteers across the country.

During his visit, Mr Javid learnt of the various job roles and responsibilities of the 400-strong staf, including supporting patients at the day hospice, driving patients, counselling, administration and reception roles, gardening, working in the six charity chops, singing in the choir and more.

Without its volunteers, the Primrose would not be able to offer the free services it does.

Some volunteers have been with the charity for more than 20 years.

And Mr Javid also took time out to shake paws with Primose’s best-known volunteer – Trevor The Dog.

Trevor, who befriends patients at the centre, has became a social media sensation with the #TrevorTuesdays phenomenon on Facebook and Twitter.

Mr Javid said: “Primrose Hospice volunteers are a fantastic asset to our community.

“It was an honour to pay tribute to their work and of course a delight to meet Trevor the wonder-dog.”

Visit @PrimoseHospice to discover just what exactly Trevor Tuesday’s are.
