Maureen Lipman entertains Chai Volunteers with amusing vignette


In honour of Volunteer Week 2018, Chai hosted a Coffee Morning on Tuesday for their fantastic and loyal volunteers. Over 60 volunteers attended the event, entitled ‘A sprinkle of stardust’ with Maureen’ with special guest and award winning British film, theatre and television actress, Maureen Lipman CBE.                 

Maureen kept everyone on the edge of their seats laughing as she revealed side-splitting stories about her life and career, including her first meeting with Barbra Streisand.

Welcoming the volunteers, Chai’s Chairman, Louise Hager said: “Our volunteers are both the backbone and our ambassadors on the front line which makes you all contortionists. Each and every one of you is very precious and brings your personality, your individual talents and your commitment to Chai and all of you are playing such a vital role in helping Chai reach so many people. The best way to thank you all today is with laughter, we all know that laughter is the best medicine!”
