Brian Harper is one of the newest volunteers to join the charity; he supports the fundraising team with a variety of administration tasks, as well as happily taking on various other projects as needed.
He is no stranger to the medical world as he spent almost 50 years working in and with the Royal Army Medical Corps – rising to the rank of Major. His career took him around the world before he settled in Shropshire in the late 80s.
Brian and Christine settled in Shrewsbury in the late 1980s. He took a staff officer medical post in Shrewsbury Headquarters for 14 years during which time he liaised with staff at Robert Jones Agnes Hunt Hospital in Oswestry.
Upon his retirement in 2002, Brian took on a number of voluntary roles with RJAH, the Shrewsbury Flower Show committee, and also tried his hand at golf.
Volunteers are at the heart of the Lingen Davies Cancer Fund. More than a hundred individuals have given their time to help over the course of the last 40 years, whether that’s working in the office, supporting events, selling Christmas cards, marshalling car parks, organising coffee mornings, collections or carol concerts.
Without them the charity would not be able to support the thousands of cancer patients who have been through the Cancer Centre, or those who have dealt with our LiveLife Cancer Awareness Service, or other community outreach project funded by Lingen Davies.
