We are deeply saddened that the wonderful Lady George has passed away. She will be greatly missed by us all. Her commitment and passion for the work of the Foundation was inspirational. Vanessa joined the board of Trustees in 2009 and was a passionate supporter. Vanessa was also a dedicated member of our Friends Committee and advised our grants team on applications to the Eddie George Memorial Fund.

The Fund, originally set up in memory of the late Lord George, supports community projects in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly to train in information technology. The awards have been making a significant impact on improving the sustainability of small volunteer lead projects. Vanessa was always very interested in visiting the projects to see how the social investment from the fund changed peoples’ lives for the better.

Lady George’s funeral will take place at St Tudy church on 6th April 2pm.
