Saturday, 5th November - Jo's Cervical Cancer Trust

I'll never, ever forget how lucky I was that my experience with cervical cancer was put to an end thanks to early detection. So I made a special effort to ensure I attended Hungerford's annual Christmas fair which is a fundraiser for Jo's Cervical Cancer Trust.

Unfortunately, while there were lots of lovely goodies at the fair, the lady on the door was so rude to me that it took the Christmas gloss and shine off a little and I didn't end up buying anything.

HOwever, Jo's Cervical Cancer Trust is a great charity.
