I have been so proud of my association with the Foundation. Since opening the Centre of Light which was my first duty as royal patron, thousands of youngsters and adults have accessed learning opportunities thanks to the Foundation.

HRH Countess of Wessex

Being from the North East I am keen to be involved in the regeneration of the region in any way I can. The Foundation is doing some fantastic work across Sunderland, South Tyneside and County Durham and it's a real privilege to be involved.

George Clark

There is a phenomenal amount of people whose lives have been improved by the work of the Foundation. But itโ€™s not always about the numbers, sometimes itโ€™s the things you canโ€™t measure. When I hear these personal, individual stories, thatโ€™s when I feel genuinely proud.
