Hi, my name is Barbara. I enjoy being with friends and family, Monday afternoon walks with my lovely ladies! I enjoy BBQ’s, wine, sunshine and our little Gite in France and time spent there with my lovely husband. I am grateful for health and my beautiful daughters. Grateful that Sophie has defied “all the odds”. I am thankful for the Austin family moving in opposite and for their love and support for the CF fight. I have been involved with the Southend Cystic Fibrosis Association since its inception…. approximately 18 years but involved with fundraising for The CF Trust for 27 years.
