I was approached by the last Secretary some 3 years ago to take over her role. This was something I had previously done for a Kent charity so I was more than willing to help.

I’ve worked on the fringes of the newspaper and magazine industry for some 25 years, designing and typesetting adverts/brochures etc. for various London clients, so helping out the charity in this capacity was home from home.

Both my husband and I have also worked as volunteers for a charity in our local town, raising funds for Kent Air Ambulance for over 10 years, so charity work was always something we loved to do.

Working for Cancer Care is a very worthwhile experience and it’s good to work with like minded people as a team – all using our differing skills and previous experience in many ways to help patients and their familites who are going through the trauma of cancer.
