Patron of Historic Royal Palaces
Through the role of Patron I support fundraising and awareness raising of the profile the six Royal Palaces play in the culture, heritage and history of the United Kingdom. Acting as a Patron of HRP is important in encouraging others to visit and appreciate the Palaces and the contribution they continue to make to contemporary life in the UK in the absence of Government funding.
St Anthony’s Special School
St Anthony’s Special School is based in Chichester and welcomes children of all ages. Donna has previously held the position of chair of the Parents and Friends of St Anthony’s and played a keen role in fundraising activities. Events have included Wine Tasting, Duck Race down the river and the Vintage Fete and Classic Car Show
The Prebendal School Chichester
Donna is delighted to work in partnership with teachers at the school to present ‘The Ockenden Award for Charitable Endeavour’. The award is in its fourth year and rewards and supports the efforts of Year 8 pupils. The winner is a student who is judged to have made the most effort to support charitable causes in their time at the school. Donna provides a donation to the charity of the pupil’s choice and a small gift to the winner in recognition of their hard work along with the stunning 1930’s antique cup.
Kate’s Home Nursing
A wonderful charity that offers palliative nursing care at home, Donna is delighted to sponsor the nurses choir to sing two songs at Kate’s Home Nursing Christmas Carol Concert 2016. The Charity was set up to nurse patients in their own home through the last stage of illness and to support their families. The rural locality reduces the ability of the larger national charities to help so Kate’s Home Nursing fills this gap in provision with its high quality ‘hospice at home’ care.
A charity founded in 1989 who provide a lifeline for homeless people with hubs, hostels and supported accommodation in Chichester, Bognor Regis and Littlehampton. Donna and her daughter manned a table at the Vintage and Very Nice Market held at the Chichester Assembly Rooms and raised £336.
