'Honoured' Niall hailed as Volunteer of the Year

Niall Greathead shone in the annual We Care Trust Awards, taking home the prestigious Volunteer of the Year Award at the ceremony last month.

Niall has been a dedicated volunteer for 10 years at Kent and Canterbury Hospital, known by both patients and staff for always being ready to lend a hand to anyone who needs it. 

Despite having his own medical problems, he works 12 hours a week to help patients coming in to the department. He doesn’t just direct people to clinics – he can often be seen on his scooter leading patients around the hospital to where they need to be.

After receiving his award from Director of Communications and Engagement Natalie Yost, Niall said he was “humbled, honoured and speechless”.

He said: “I don’t see what I do as something special – I just get on and do it! I am inspired by what I see and learn all over the Trust on a daily basis.”
