We are thrilled to announce that BBC Broadcaster and journalist, Martha Kearney, is joining our community as a Patron to support our fundraising campaign.
As we launch our campaign to build new accessible accommodation for our community, we had been looking for a patron to work with us through this significant and transformational period.
We are proud to announce our new patron as Martha Kearney. A celebrated journalist, broadcaster, and the current presenter of BBC Radio 4’s Today programme. Her awards include Political Commentator of the Year (House Magazine), Radio Presenter of the Year (TRIC) and Best Individual Contribution to Radio (Voice of Listener and Viewer). Martha’s literary prowess and love of storytelling have seen her on the judging panels of the Man Booker Prize and Orange Prize for Fiction, to name just a few. An avid beekeeper, she has also made several BBC programmes on the subject.
Martha Kearney’s brother-in-law, Alistair, was a resident at Camphill for c. 30 years, so her connection to our community is a long-standing one. She’s often on-site and welcomes residents from Blackthorn to her house each year for a summer party. As a Patron, she will advocate for our community, attend fundraising events, help the community to engage on a greater level, and fly the flag for our charity that is so vital to social care in Buckinghamshire and beyond. Her expertise and connectivity will help raise our profile. Martha will be supported by Camphill MK CEO Tim Davies and Lucy Davies, Head of Development, with strategy development, advocacy, and partnership in the hope that together, they will secure inward investment for the Capital Plan.
Martha explains,“I am thrilled to be supporting Camphill MK as a Patron. The community is dear to my heart, and I look forward to working with the team in any way I can to help them to secure such much-needed funding. Camphill MK is unique in its approach and enables adults with learning disabilities to live full and rich lives.”
