We are very grateful to our patrons, who are fabulous and committed ambassadors for the charity.
We are also delighted to have the support of several other locally-based celebrities, who get involved with our events and other activities, as their time allows.
Our newest celebrity patron, Joe Cole, of Peaky Blinders and Gangs of London fame, recently took on a gruelling 980 mile cycle, raising over £45,000 for the charity. Having grown up in Kingston, the charity is close to Joe's heart and he's seen first-hand some of the work we do after meeting some of the children and families we support.
