To celebrate Volunteers’ Week from 1 to 7 June, here at Young Lives vs Cancer (CLIC Sargent is now known as Young Lives vs Cancer)

We want to take the opportunity to say a huge thank you to all of our incredible volunteers who help in Dorset.

From volunteering in our shops to collecting tins to speaking at events to share their stories, our volunteers make it possible for our charity shops to open every day in the community and to raise awareness for Young Lives vs Cancer whilst raising vital funds to support young people and children with cancer.

We are lucky to have an amazing team of passionate volunteers who have created a real sense of community and champion the charity.

Volunteers are crucial to our work and mission to limit the damage cancer causes beyond a young person or child’s health. As the UK’s leading cancer charity for children and young people, every hour of our volunteers’ time is truly valued and makes a huge difference to the young people and children we support.

Often a volunteer comes to us after a personal experience of cancer in their family, but many also give their time to meet new people, develop their skills or simply because they want to make a real difference.

A famous quote states: “We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.”

We are always looking for more volunteers. If any readers would like to find out more, they can do so by signing up at

Tank you to each and every one of our volunteers and to the people from Dorset for continuing to support Young Lives vs Cancer. We REALLY appreciate your support.
