Chris Bell – affectionately called “Peaches” has lost her valiant battle with breast cancer. Fortunately Peaches, although ill at the time was able to experience the elation of competing at the International Dragon Boat festival at Caloundra last year. More recently, with the help of a carer, Peaches spent a relaxing, enlightening, serene and fun few days at the Otis retreat in Bendigo.
Our lovely friend will be missed but never forgotten and her quiet, sweet spirit will paddle with us always.
