Earlier this month John was delighted to visit his local Cancer Research UK shop in East Street, Southampton.
During the visit John found out more about the hard work that goes on behind the scenes.
“I was lucky to have an experienced volunteer to show me the ropes. It’s inspirational to meet volunteers who give up their valuable time to contribute to the smooth running of this busy shop. Cancer Research UK relies on over 40,000 volunteers across the UK and without their support vital work like the running of this shop could not continue.
“It is vital that the local community continues to help raising vital funds to help beat cancer.
“Cancer Research UK’s shops rely on donations from the public to help fund their life-saving work. So I encourage everyone to clear out their wardrobes and cupboards of unwanted clothes, CDs, DVDs, books and quality household goods and drop them off. Each bag of donated goods could be worth up to £30 to the charity or even £37.50 through Gift Aid.”
