The trustees are delighted that The Lady Fellowes LVO has agreed to become the Home-Start North Dorset Patron.
Chair of Trustees, Jenny Kretz, said, ‘I am thrilled that Lady Fellowes has accepted our invitation. I am well aware of all her other commitments so am particularly appreciative of her good will towards our Charity and her very positive support for the work our Organiser and volunteers are doing within the community.’
Lady Fellowes and her husband playwright, author, Director, Julian Fellowes, were guests of honour in September 2015 at the Gala Dinner, ‘Downton comes to Hinton’ hosted by Home-Start Trustees at The Tithe Barn Hinton St. Mary. Lady Fellowes expressed a real interest in the work the charity does helping families across North Dorset to overcome difficult times and create better lives for their children.
Lady Fellowes hopes to be able to attend a Home-Start event every year and will bring the work of the Charity to the notice of others; promoting and publicising the positive impact the trained volunteers can have through the at home support, encouragement and friendship they offer to families in times of need.
