I strapped on my dancing shoes in the name of a good cause this week.

Christmas can at times feel like it is all about buying presents, but I always like to give a little back and for me charity starts at home.

So when I was approached by Wicklow friend and neighbour, Emma Hannigan, and asked to join in this year's Strictly Against Breast Cancer, I just couldn't refuse and boy was I glad - it was a great experience and all in a good cause.

What was different about this event for me is that they support Breast Cancer Ireland in their mission to research a cure for breast cancer. Now wouldn't that be a better world for everyone?

With this vision in mind I gave up my time willingly over the past eight weeks to practice my dance moves with my wonderfully talented dance partner, Gerald Kean, to support this great cause. Not only did we have great fun along the way, I also met some great people and made some new friends all the while raising much needed funds for this worthwhile cause.

I also caught up with fellow foodie Roz Purcell over the last few days at my annual engagement with the Make-A-Wish Foundation event with Amelia Deane, who had her dreams realised.

I was joined by the beautiful Roz who shares my love of food and we had great fun baking up a storm together with our lovely little helper Amelia.

This is the fourth year that I have worked with this charity and their partner Fairy to help children with life-threatening illnesses.
