Roy Robertson, 69, from Caerphilly, has been volunteering for Cancer Research Wales since 2007.
In 2006, a routine check-up showed Roy was at risk of prostate cancer.
Roy, a retired transport manager, opted to have radiotherapy, which has brought the PSA levels down to a healthy range. Roy felt strongly that more awareness needed to be raised about the symptoms of prostate cancer and contacted Cancer Research Wales for more information.
Roy said: “I was asked if I’d consider volunteering for Cancer Research Wales and I agreed to get involved, as it is such an important cause. I now take part in supermarket bucket collections around once a month for a morning or afternoon and I also help out by acting as a steward at various events such as the Pink and Blue walks, and the 5k runs.
“I try to keep as fit and healthy as possible, so I take part in the Cancer Research Wales annual bike ride too, which is a great way of raising money for the charity.”
