Barry Caplan

“I just thought ‘I have to do something here’”

Barry Caplan has been volunteering as a driver with the Retail team for three years and his wife volunteers for us, in our Bushey Shop. Barry said: “It just gives me a buzz to be involved and know I’m helping people. I love going around the Shops and talking to the managers and volunteers. It’s great, you build up a nice rapport and just have a laugh and a joke together. I was very affected seeing patients in the IPU for the first time, and I just thought ‘I have to do something here’ – I get quite emotional about it sometimes. But it has given me the drive to volunteer because the end product is always helping patients. You can’t live life taking all the time, you have to give back”
