What will tomorrow bring, I wonder?

After the hype of our walk, life has thankfully slowed down a little and we are looking forward to a welcomed break over Easter.

However, the diary is filling up with summer events and I am always amazed at where we often find ourselves and the people we meet.

Last week we attended a very enjoyable concert performed by the Wellingborough Orpheus Choir where we were fortunate to receive a generous donation from a retirement collection; talks have been given at various groups across the county; we have attended funerals and we went to receive a cheque following a hugely successful Zumbathon marathon held by a group in Corby.

We have also had many people attend our weekly coffee and chat mornings. Imagine my surprise at our last meeting when the postman delivered a letter with the words 10 Downing Street typed on the reverse of the envelope.

At the moment the volume of post is quite high due to sponsor money coming in – and we do thank everyone who has paid theirs to date – so it took a few seconds for this well-known address to register.

Inside was an invite from the Prime Minister to attend a reception at No 10 to discuss the work we do at Crazy Hats and to put forward our dream of creating a breast cancer haven here in Northamptonshire.

What an opportunity to put Northamptonshire on the map and to explain to David Cameron face-to-face why we need bigger and better facilities to cater for the ever-growing number of people we encounter!

I am very excited, proud and honoured to be able to represent our charity and the community and I look forward to letting you know how it goes.
