Founder of the Lumos foundation and supporter of many worthy causes, she has recently given her support to the Daily Mail’s NHS volunteer campaign which is all about encouraging those who can, to volunteer for the NHS.
The Daily Mail campaign has been encouraging its readers to offer their time to the NHS. Where they can aide and support patients and ease the strain that overstretched staff has been dealing with. So far, more than 22,000 people have volunteered since it launched on December 1.
The campaign has drawn in support from many celebrities and public figures across the United Kingdom. J.K. Rowling is the latest to give her backing, explaining that those who have volunteered should be hailed.

Rowling said the following:
‘The NHS is one of our country’s most cherished institutions, one that we can truly be proud of.
‘Despite the constant pressures and constraints, it never ceases to amaze me just how much work and time all those involved dedicate to continuing to make this organisation function, let alone excel.
‘And now, a new army of volunteers have stepped forward. The thousands who are giving up their time to help the NHS through the Helpforce campaign should be applauded.’
And fellow bestselling novelist William Boyd, author of Any Human Heart, said: ‘This is a massively important and timely campaign.
‘Anything we can do to support the wonderful NHS is wholly worthwhile.’
Those who have pledged to volunteer would begin next year in the Spring of 2019. Where they would aide in the collection of prescriptions, helping out during meal times, and even simply befriending and spending some quality time with patients.
Currently, the NHS already has around 78,000 volunteers, who have been found to be a crucial and necessary part of hospitals around the country. Improving the overall experience for both patients and staff.
