Thank you to all those who help make TVF's ball such a success year after year - the funds raised have helped to transform so many lives. We are planning an event on 4th December 2020, which may be a virtual one, to raise much needed funds so that we can go on providing vital medical equipment and assistance to those in need in our local community and support for the NHS doctors of the future through grants for medical students facing financial hardship. Please save the date - 4th December 2020 - details to follow soon.

TVF's 2019 fundraising ball raised over £40,000 which will help to transform so many more lives through the work of The Victoria Foundation and our beneficiary partners Crossroads Care Richmond and Kingston and Strathmore School.
A huge thank you to all those who donated prizes and to the guests who attended the ball for their fantastic support - congratulations to the winner of raffle and the diamond ring kindly donated once again by David's Jewellers in Richmond.

The funds raised have enabled Crossroads Care Richmond & Kingston to create two new therapy rooms offering complementary massage and holistic therapies for Carers and the people they care for. With many CCR&K clients using respite breaks to complete basic tasks and errands, and Carers twice as likely to develop long-term health conditions – ‘time out’ has never been more important and now even more so with the impact of COVID-19.
In addition, the funds will support children and youngsters with complex needs through the enhancement and development of the indoor soft-play rooms and outdoor gyms of Strathmore School across all three school campuses within the Borough of Richmond.
We look forward to visiting both CCR&K and the Strathmore School sites in the coming months to see how our support is helping to transform lives. We will share details of the visits in our Autumn/Winter Newsletter 2020.
