    Jude Williams said

    I first became involved as a volunteer when I was feeling really low and suddenly decided that I had to concentrate on something other than myself. I didn’t know what to do, but then through the door came the Claire House newsletter with a short piece saying they were looking for volunteers. When I had been Lady Captain in 2006 at Aldersey Green Golf Club near Chester I had chosen Claire House as my charity for that year and had kept up my links, however tenuous! I emailed the lovely Anna and the rest is a whirlwind of the most enjoyable bucket collections, ticket selling, merchandise selling and a host of other duties. I do as little or as much as I can according to my other commitments and I have met a huge amount of wonderful people. Last year I was asked to become an ambassador too. This involves accepting cheques and giving short thank you speeches on behalf of the Claire House Team and I never cease to be amazed at the variety of money raising events the general public come up with and how hard everyone works. I am enormously proud to be associated with the inspirational Claire House Team. Claire House itself is a joyous place and the children who share this deserve the very best!
