Our late Patron

We are extremely sad at the loss of our wonderful Patron, who died at the age of 62 on 20th April 2016.

Victoria Wood was loved by millions for her comic genius, musicianship, as a writer and as an actor. She was also a thoroughly supportive and active Patron: when she agreed to join us in our early days, she said that she would want to be involved, and not just a figurehead. And she was true to her word, generous in every way to this small charity whose ethos she completely agreed with. She is irreplaceable and we will miss her enormously.
