“'The overriding feeling I get from volunteering for Orchid is simply that it is a lot of fun!! I have met an array of new and exciting people who are genuinely motivated and passionate about making a difference and that in turn motivates me to do the same. Intrinsically, volunteering for Orchid is threefold, it allows me to do something self fulfilling purely because i enjoy it, the second is that it allows me to raise the profile of Testicular Cancer and Orchid in a way that people can relate to, ensuring the charity is recognized for its amazing efforts and thirdly, it has allowed me to learn and practice new skills and experiences which have helped me with my own direction in life. Ultimately it has been the best decision I have ever made'”
“We have volunteered at Orchid’s Essex cycle ride for the past 4 years. We love being part of the day, providing directions and moral support to the cyclists. A close friend of ours has prostate cancer, so we are delighted to help out in any way we can for such a great cause”

“I worked 3 days a week with Orchid for 6 months. I was involved in a number of different areas which enabled me to gain valuable experience in the charity sector. I now have a full time job and am grateful to all the staff at Orchid for their support”
