Welcome back to another episode of That Cancer Conversation! 

Here at Cancer Research UK, we’re grateful to benefit from the support of more than 25,000 incredible volunteers, who donate their time to help us beat cancer 

So, in the lead up to Volunteers’ Week on the 3rd of June, we want to say a huge thank you to our brilliant community of volunteers, whose support makes our life-saving research possible. 

To celebrate their stories, we’re diving into the world of volunteering across 2 special episodes. 

First up, we’re chatting to Penny, who’s been volunteering with us for over 10 years, both as a campaign’s ambassador and as a member of the Children & Young People Insights Panel. 

After losing family members to cancer, Penny started volunteering in 2010 when she was 21, and hasn’t looked back since. 

Looking for a way to get stuck in and make a difference? Head to our volunteering pages to find out how you can get involved.  

And if you’ve got an hour to spare, why not really make it count as part of the Big Help Out?   

On the 7-9 June, join millions of people across the UK in lending their time to events, shops, campaigns, and much more. Find out how you can help out here 

Join us next week, when we’ll be hearing from Rhian about her experience volunteering at Race for Life events.
