Two longtime volunteers for the White Rock South Surrey Hospice Society were honoured for their service last week.

Ellen Wilson-Cosgrove and Joanne Hart were recognized for 25 years of volunteer service at the society’s annual general meeting June 25. They both received bouquets of flowers and a 25-year pin.

“This is such an accomplishment for these women, and the longevity of their service truly speaks to the commitment our hospice society volunteers feel for the service they provide in our community,” acting executive director Beth Kish said in a release.

The WRSSHS offers emotional, practical and spiritual support to residents of the Peninsula and their families facing illness, grief and end of life.
