Jessie’s Fund was fortunate to have the late, great Victoria Wood as our Patron for 17 years. Along with her millions of fans, we miss her enormously. She totally engaged with what we do, she understood it, and she was generous with her time and support. She made a huge difference to Jessie’s Fund, and we will be eternally grateful.
But her support has not ended. The Victoria Wood Foundation is the means by which she planned to continue helping her favourite charities beyond her lifetime, and we thank the Trustees of the Foundation for having awarded Jessie’s Fund one of their first grants.
‘I feel privileged to be a part of Jessie’s Fund, however small…. I’m glad to be connected with a charity whose aims I can really understand and support.’ Victoria Wood
And, for us, Victoria will remain ever connected with Jessie’s Fund.
