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.
