I'm applying for Natural Sciences at Cambridge as well as Biochemistry at some other universities.

I'm writing a draft of my personal statement, and I'm having difficulty starting it. Does anybody have any tips/advice?

Yeah, it's quite difficult these damn things.
I'm writing mine for Physics/NatSci though.
I've pretty much written mine just adding a few things.
Best stategy is to divide the statement up into sections, e.g. why science/biochemistry, reading around subject and so on.

Well I've got 4 main section I'm going to include.

- Why biochemistry (including outside reading + workshops I've attended),
- Why my current studies have lead me to this degree
- Skill I've developed through my current studies,
- Outside interests, hobbies, work experience etc.

Don't start with the start. Start with the hobbies and stuff which are (I think) easier to write about. And then at the end (or when it occurs to you) and a paragraph about each of the other important bits.
