Alexei Kervezee stumps up support

Alexei Kervezee, Worcestershire County Cricketer, volunteers for Acorns

“I can’t speak highly enough of the work and employees of Acorns and what they do for the children and their families. It is a great cause and volunteering for them is one of the best decisions I’ve made.”

 

Alexei Kervezee, A Worcestershire County Cricket star, signed up for a volunteer role at Acorns for the Three Counties in Worcester.

Alex said “I’ve been fortunate enough to travel all over the world with the Holland cricket team and I’ve seen the best and worst of a lot of those places so I’ve always thought that I’d like to go into looking after children.

“I can’t speak highly enough of the work and employees of Acorns and what they do for the children and their families. It is a great cause and volunteering for them is one of the best decisions I’ve made.”

Kervezee hopes is focusing his hospice volunteering experience around hydrotherapy, by assisting physiotherapists in this specialist area of care. Hydrotherapy is used by the hospice to help relax, stimulate and manage the symptoms of children and young people.

Alexei continued: “My fiancé works for a local special school, so by talking to her about what she does has helped give me a nudge towards this line of work and I’m looking forward to developing my skills and expertise.”  

Volunteer Manager at the hospice, Katreena Barnes, said: “We are extremely grateful to Alexei for giving up his time for Acorns and for his enthusiasm and commitment to our work. As a charity we simply wouldn’t be able to provide the care we do without the help of our incredible volunteers and we’re very much looking forward to welcoming Alexei on board in September.”
