Shiela, volunteer

Volunteering at the shop gives me a sense of purpose and community connectivity. I enjoy the social side of it, and I’ve met some brilliant people. I think Yorkshire Cancer Research is an excellent cause. The research it funds to help people with a diagnosis of cancer have a better prognosis is something I am proud to support, and I feel quite fortunate that Yorkshire has its own research charity."
