Our Patrons & Supporters

Trinity could not achieve its aims without the support of a wide number of people and organisations.


Many of the bodies through which young people come to us cannot afford to meet the full cost involved. They contribute as much as they can from often limited and restricted resources. In order to enable those who are most deserving and who can benefit from what we offer we raise funds with which to provide bursaries.


We also occasionally raise funds with which to meet the cost of major restoration projects.


That money comes from a variety of sources: grants from charitable trusts, donations from individuals and corporate bodies, events, legacies and regular donations from our Friends of Trinity group. For more information please see our Support Us pages.


We are extremely fortunate in all of this to have the support of an active group of Patrons, who are:



  • The Lord Clinton



  • Rear Admiral Sir Toby Frere



  • Sir John Rose


Vice Presidents:

  • Col. John Blashford-Snell OBE
  • Simon Britten
  • Brig. Ian Creamer MC
  • Sir Simon Day
  • Michael Hutchinson
  • Sir Robin Knox-Johnston CBE
  • Maj. Ranulf Rayner
