Many celebrities offer their support in a variety of ways, from becoming ambassadors for the charity, providing quotes for our fundraising appeals, to offering their time for campaigns such as The Big Chocolate Tea Party.
The Sick Children’s Trust benefits greatly from the practical help and interest of our celebrity supporters.
The President of The Sick Children's Trust is Michael Crawford CBE who has provided tremendous support for nearly 30 years. Michael became President in March 1987 and has become a great friend. One of our ‘Homes from Home’, Crawford House in Newcastle, is named in his honour.
Michael says: "It has been a huge honour to play a part in the growth of The Sick Children's Trust. The energy which the charity injects into new projects is remarkable. They never cease to look for new ways in which they can support families and help keep them together at such vulnerable times. When a child faces a life-threatening illness it is essential to their recovery that they are surrounded by their whole family."
