I’m delighted to be the Patron to some amazing charities. You can’t support everyone, but I’ve pinned my colours to the masts of these deserving causes.
Yorkshire Cat Rescue
Yorkshire cat rescue who do amazing work in rehoming cats who are lost, abandoned or for owners who sadly become too ill to care for them and need to know they will be safe. The YCR have a no-kill policy, unlike a lot of other animal charities. I’ve known them since I got my first kitten ever from them 150 years ago. They’re friends and wonderful and work tirelessly and it’s a pleasure to be part of them.

The Well at the Core
This is a complementary therapy clinic for people with the big C and their relatives, associated with Barnsley Hospital. They offer massages, a wig trying-on service, all sorts of treatments which take people out of the zone for a while. Anyone who has ever used the Well will tell you what a fabulous place it is, run by wonderful people.
Barnsley Youth Choir
I am also a patron for the Barnsley Youth Choir who aren’t just a group of kids who sing… they take it to another level. They are invited to go all over the globe because they’re so damned good, and enter world championship competitions – but for that they need a few bob.
