You may find sadness but stumble across smiles and joy too…Charlie will offer insights and strategies that will help you understand the challenges that many of us will face. There will be a chance to offer your thoughts and questions after the show. You can find out more at http://www.yarnwhispering.co.uk/orienteering/
