CEO - Team Talk 💬

Updated: Nov 10, 2022

TEAM BUTTERFLY...Together we can go HIGHER!

It never ceases to amaze me how our small team can rise to any challenge ensuring what we do, ultimately has a significant impact on those who need our hospice.

We are such a varied bunch, rich in knowledge, skills and experience that shapes the work we do for the charity and also in the hospice itself. As with many teams, ours continues to transform and grow. Recently, we have moved away from some traditional roles and introduced new posts which will help in future-proofing our team’s efforts and strengthening our service to the community.

George Maddison

Communications and Volunteer Coordinator

"My role is responsible for the charity's online and digital presence, and will also support the charity's

volunteer recruitment.

I look forward to increasing the brands digital profile and increasing charitable engagement through my 6+ years of Marketing knowledge and experience.

The Butterfly Hospice Trust offers an extremely rewarding career whilst making a real difference to those who

use the hospice."

Lee Pierce

Operations Manager

"My role is responsible for the delivery of the Board of Trustees Strategic vision, policies and service to the community and other stakeholders. This is an important and fulfilling role which is dedicated to ensuring the effective day to day running of sites management at the hospice.

The Butterfly Hospice is a beautiful and fantastic place to work, it is great to contribute to such an important local charity which provides such a vital service for local community."

Paul Caddell

Therapy Services Manager

"Our therapy service is going from strength to strength, linking with GP surgeries as well as the Pilgrim Lung Team, MND society, the Beam Café and other mental health providers in the county. We provide a professional person-centred service to those dealing with bereavement or a life-limiting illness and it is a privilege for me to be part of this rapidly expanding service. Our aim is to make ‘Every lived day better’ and we achieve this through great teamwork between our clinical partners LCHS and the charity staff."

The addition of new staff into our charity is greatly encouraging, there is a greater sense of vitality in bringing in new ideas to drive improvement. It is also so incredibly heart-warming to have the support of our longstanding staff, those who have been loyal and steadfast, especially through the rollercoaster of the pandemic.

The charity is in great form to build upon the improvements we have made over the past year – including modernisation of our IT and retail infrastructure and the launch of our new therapy service. The year ahead into 2023 will include further improvements in our hospice upgrade and therapy service – this is only possible with the continued effort and positivity from our incredible staff team, volunteers and their engagement with our local communities who give so generously.

True teamwork should be celebrated and shared … and for this month I am delighted to announce that our amazingly talented LCHS nursing team have been shortlisted for the ‘Celebrating Success Staff and Volunteer Awards’ for the category of ‘People’s Award and a further shortlist to one of our nurses, Becca, for the Patient Involvement and Experience Award. Well done for your achievements thus far – worthy nominations made from our families and loved ones, whose opinions matter.

Good luck and well done Team Butterfly. TOGETHER WE REALLY CAN GO HIGHER!
