I am one of the founder members of Bosom Buddies – when a few of us got together for that first meeting to form a dragon boat team, we had no idea that it would mushroom into the organization it is today.

From our humble beginnings we now have over 50 members, each one with a story to tell and a shoulder to lean on. We all have our ups and downs, but one thing we can always count on is the help and support of the group. It is my privilege to belong to such a wonderful group of women – we paddle
together, we laugh together and sometimes we cry together, but always there is the understanding and support.

I have changed from a couch potatoe into an athlete, I am now fit and strong and I look forward to every practise and every festival. Bosom Buddies has been a life saver for me, both mentally and physically, I
am now classed as a senior citizen but I do not feel like one nor do I act like one. I sincerely hope that I can be an active member of Bosom Buddies for many more years.
