I chose Prevent Breast Cancer because of the research work they are doing into the effects of food and lifestyle on the development of the disease. As a publisher of cookbooks, it seemed a natural selection. My aim is to raise £50,000 – whether I do it is another matter, but I am a great believer in just getting on with things, in some ways the same attitude I took to treatment. I look back now and can laugh at the moment I announced to a summer lunch party that I was just too hot and the wig was coming off. These experiences can shape us, but they can’t beat us!


You can purchase a copy of ’50 Things I wish I’d told you: Life Skills’ from the Prevent Breast Cancer shop. Polly recently did a Vlog with sustainable clothing brand, Cucumber Clothing.
