Helping young people to aspire and older people to thrive

Happy 5th Birthday to the Foundation!

Five years ago today the Founding Trustees of the Sir Simon Milton Foundation, Lisa Milton (Simon’s sister), Robert Davis MBE DL (Simon’s civil partner), The Lady Flight, Sir Peter Rogers and Julia Corkey, put their pens to a Trust Deed creating the Sir Simon Milton Foundation.

Robert Davis, Founding Trustee, and Matthew Sykes, Chief Executive, celebrate the birthday with a cake

Since then we have coordinated thousands of Silver Sunday free events for older people nationwide, we have delivered over 900 Christmas hampers to the most vulnerable and isolated people in the City of Westminster, every year we have held a Tea Dance for 1,000 older citizens, we have awarded scholarships and bursaries to 23 students, we have raised more than £2 million pounds and our flagship, state-of-the-art Sir Simon Milton Westminster University Technical College opens in Pimlico in September 2017. Many, many reasons to celebrate!
