Meet Alicia

Alicia

Alicia is one of our retail volunteers, and has been volunteering at our Rhiwbina shop in Cardiff for about 18 months.

Meet Alicia:

"I’ve volunteered at my local Tenovus Cancer Care shop for about 18 months now. I decided to choose this cancer charity above any others, because they were the only one that helped me through a very difficult time. I lost my sister in 2009, then a year later I lost my husband. No other charity was able to offer me help, as I wasn't the one who’d had cancer.

"I first got to know this amazing charity through a coffee morning arranged by a Friends of Tenovus Cancer Care Group. It was through that, that I made lots of new friends, and became a volunteer.

"I enjoy coming in every week to the shop. It’s a lovely place to volunteer, the people here are absolutely wonderful! It gives me a purpose, a reason to get up in the morning. It’s really fun and we’re always laughing – even though it can be quite tough!

"Many of the volunteers here have been affected by cancer, so there are some darker days - but we help each other out, and support each other. Nobody ever leaves their shift feeling down! I am so fortunate to work with some wonderful people."
