Lee's Story

My father died from cancer when I was very young, and so I wanted to get involved in something that is involved with cancer, and I couldn’t think of a small child dying of the disease and the knock-on effect with the whole family, not just the child it’s parents it’s relatives

From volunteering I get a sense of accomplishment, I’ve liked learning about all the different projects, and I like that it makes a difference. I said to some people that volunteering is the best job I have ever had only because of what you are getting out of it, you can help people – if I can walk home and say right, I have helped someone today then I’m happy with that!
