Barbara Knowles

Barbara has left a gift to World Cancer Research Fund UK in her will and spoke at a supporter event at the House of Commons.

I became aware of the work of World Cancer Research Fund after losing both my parents and a number of friends and relatives to cancer.

“I’ve now really embraced the charity’s healthy lifestyle message – I swim every week, as well as practicing yoga, doing Tai Chi and walking regularly with a group. It’s a great way to get to know people and really helps you to be cheerful and optimistic.

“I would like the charity’s work to continue to expand so that their cancer prevention messages reach even more people. That’s why I’ve left a gift in my will. I know I’m helping future generations.”
