A lovely donation shop in Canton keeps love alive.

Walking down the Cowbridge road, the unassuming window displays of Cancer Research UK shop although less eye-dazzling than other fancy shops, taking a few minutes to walk in, some lovely and compassionate stories can still be explored through its volunteers, donors and customers.

This unpretentious donation shop is one of the 600 offline shops across the country, which accepts and sells local people’s donations to fund the life-saving research.
