Thoroughly enjoyed the annual WOMAC Valentine's party. I'm proud to be a patron of Women on the Move Against Cancer. We are a group of women working within the UK motoring industry who raise money in our spare time for a different cancer charity each year. Naturally we rely on the generosity of our colleagues to donate and raise money.
WOMAC has raised £800,000 since 1979. It has always chosen to support small, worthwhile charities that find it hard to compete with larger ones. So this year we are raising money for the Pancreatic Cancer Research Fund, recognising that little progress has been made in fighting this form of the disease compared with other cancers.
Having been away from the industry for a few years, it was lovely to see so many familiar friendly faces at the party, and to meet some new young ones, including journalist Sophie Williamson-Stothert, and motorsport PR Gaynor Keating.
It was also touching to see so much cash handed over by motoring journalists and PRs. Thank you to everyone who has contributed so far.
