Clare and her friend in coats and scarfs at the Pink Ribbon Walk finish line in Chatsworth cheering on walkers

I was teamed up with a great bunch of people, all with our various stories of how we’d been touched by cancer and how we’d come to volunteer…. I had one of the most memorable days ever at a fabulous sunny Chatsworth, struggling to put up a gazebo, cutting up oranges, cheering walkers on at the finish line, and just having the best time, laughing our heads off all the way through. It was a such a rewarding experience
