On the 5th February, Judge Rinder was the star guest at Chai’s fortnightly Wednesday afternoon socials. The socials are organised by long – standing volunteers Lynne Silver, Andee Roback and Barbara Freedman who were recently awarded the ‘Volunteer Team of the Year’ award at the annual JVN Celebration of Volunteering Awards.
The room was packed out with clients mingling and taking selfies with Judge Rinder before he took ‘centre stage’. The winning combination of his expertise and humour captivated the crowd as he gave an insightful and honest account of his journey as a young Barrister to landing himself his own television show.
In an approachable and easy manner Judge Rinder encouraged the participants to ask a variety of questions in a lively Q&A. No question was off limits, covering topics from his fascinating court cases, to his Bubba ‘shepping nachas’ when he was on ‘Strictly Come Dancing’.
Praising the support that Chai provides to its clients, Judge Rinder comments, “It isn’t possible for language, or even poetry, to express how amazing places like Chai are there for those of us whose lives are affected by cancer.
