Collecting cheques

"I’ve found that one small act from a volunteer really does make a huge difference"

"Over the last 4 years I have performed various roles for Prostate Cancer UK, including Peer support, talking to the media, delivering awareness talks to groups and campaigning at Westminster. 

I’ve found that one small act from a volunteer really does make a huge difference.  For example, I was thanked for attending when I collected a cheque one day. I replied “it’s me that should be thanking you and your team for making such an effort to raise the money”. I discovered they had done fundraising for other charities but no one had attended when invited, so it really does make such a difference when it’s collected by someone with firsthand experience of prostate cancer, who can also represent the charity locally.   

I have been proud to represent the charity, and it’s so good to feel that you are also helping and supporting others."
