I have no idea how these women have managed to scrape together the wherewithal to do what they do on a daily basis. They started in 2011 and have remarkable tales of achievements within that time.

      It’s such a pleasure Gill – what you’re doing is just amazing, and the huge love you have in your heart always brings a tear to my eye actually. I’m better enough to nibble now, although I’ve developed a strong aversion to sugar – so I’ll only have the really, really dark choccie.
