Welcome back to another episode of That Cancer Conversation! 

We’re kicking off Volunteers’ Week 2024 with the second of our special episodes celebrating our inspiring volunteers. 

Last time, we chatted to Penny, one of our campaigns ambassadors. This week, we’re moving into the world of events with Rhian. 

Rhian has been volunteering at Race for Life and Pretty Muddy events across London since 2021. She was inspired to get involved after her own diagnosis of ovarian cancer. 

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?   

This weekend (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 

Volunteers are the backbone of our charity and represent us in communities right across the UK. We have more than six times as many people volunteering for us than we have members of our staff, and their impact is felt across every area of the organisation.   

We want to say a huge thank you to Rhian and Penny for joining me on the podcast, and to every single one of our volunteers for their dedication and generosity.  

Every minute counts and every hour you give takes us one step closer to beating cancer.
