Carol Drinkwater

Carol Drinkwater is probably best known for her role as Helen Herriot in the BBC series All Creatures Great and Small. Also an accomplished novelist, she has achieved bestselling status with her much-loved memoirs of life on an olive farm in Provence.

Carol has been invited to work with UNESCO to help found an Olive Heritage Trail around the Mediterranean Basin. The aim is to create peace within the region and honour the heritage of this sacred tree.

Carol writes:-

"I know that when my sister had cancer, the support of those around her was a huge part of her recovery process and the ongoing maintenance of her good health. Here in France, Cancer Support France offer that vital help at this critical time. I am delighted to learn of the work of CSF. Such support communities are vitally needed right now."
