Meet Caroline: Leeds Cares Volunteer

"I wanted to thank the staff who cared so well for me and my husband."

Caroline has volunteered in our charity shop for three years after she retired in 2012.

In 2004, she was diagnosed with cancer and cared for at Leeds Cancer Centre and just four years ago her husband was diagnosed with leukaemia and was also treated in Leeds, so Caroline wanted to give something back.

Caroline loves working in the charity shop, “It’s been such a rewarding and humbling experience. I’ve made so many great friends with the other volunteers and I love chatting to the patients and families who pop in!”
