Medical support transforming lives

Published: 12 January 2022


We are delighted that TVF's Winter Ball was able to go ahead on 11th December at Royal Mid-Surrey Golf Club. A huge thank you to our wonderful supporters and guests who helped raise over £35,000 which will transform many more lives in our community. Congratulations to all those who won such fantastic prizes in the Diamond Draw, Raffle, and Auctions, your support is so greatly appreciated.

The proceeds from the ball will ensure Clarendon School can get the new accessible minibus it so needs, TVF can continue to provide  specialist therapies for Carers and their cared for through our support for Crossroads Care Richmond and Kingston, and vital mobility aids for disabled youngsters.   PLEASE SAVE 10th December for TVF's WINTER BALL 2022

'On behalf of the whole Clarendon School community, I'd like to say an enormous "thank you" to The Victoria Foundation and its supporters for their generous grant towards our new school minibus. 

As we start to emerge from the pandemic, and venture back out into the wider community, our new bus will allow our pupils (all of whom have learning difficulties and additional complex needs) to access the full range of curriculum-supporting trips, school journeys, enrichment and extracurricular activities. 

Your support will directly improve the day-to-day experiences of our vulnerable young people and enable us to provide the rich and varied opportunities beyond the school environment which are such a valuable part of what we do.'

John Kipps, Headteacher Clarendon School

'On behalf of Crossroads Care Richmond and Kingston upon Thames, we would like to forward our utmost thanks and gratitude for your most generous donation of £16,895.92, which we have now received …

Your support helps us continue in our mission to provide vital services to those often hard to reach families and Carers – often outside the statutory framework. More recently, those most affected by COVID-19 – those socially isolated, most vulnerable, at-risk, and financially affected.'       Julie Da Costa, CEO of CCR&K

We would also like to take this opportunity to thank our sponsors - Cantell & Co Estate Agents, David's Jewellers, New Victoria Hospital, Penrose Group, Sheen Lane Developments, and Chris Mills our auctioneer for the evening, the ball committee, and all the businesses and individuals for donating such fantastic prizes.
