We are excited to announce that Michael More-Molyneux, HM Lord-Lieutenant of Surrey, has agreed to be our Patron. Michael's visit to our This Is Me celebration at Denbies in March, where he enjoyed speaking with PSDS member families, inspired him to offer his support.
Speaking from his family home in Loseley Park, Guildford, Michael said: "I am absolutely delighted to be the first Patron of PSDS. The charity has achieved so much in 10 years and I have been so taken by the enthusiasm and hard work of both the Trustees as well as all the families involved. I look forward to supporting this very special charity in the coming years."
Thanking Michael for his endorsement of PSDS, our Chairman Rick Wates commented: "We are thrilled to have Michael's support which will make a significant difference to PSDS and all involved. This is a very special year for us and we also have much to look forward to as we continue helping our children with Down syndrome to reach their full, wonderful potential."
In addition to his business interests running Loseley Park Farms, Michael is actively involved in a significant number of organisations and good causes including Shooting Star Chase, Headway, Challengers, Surrey Community Foundation, British Red Cross, Surrey Youth Focus and Surrey Clubs for Young People.
We are delighted to welcome Michael to PSDS and he is looking forward to meeting more of our families at PSDS events soon.
