Sunfield’s Patrons

Adrian_Chiles_Resized_PI-155x175

Adrian Chiles

Adrian spent most of his childhood living just a couple of miles from Sunfield and attended school in nearby Hagley.

His Marathon training often sees him running on the Clent Hills around Sunfield. In 2005, he completed the London Marathon dressed as the West Bromwich Albion FC mascot, Baggie Bird in aid of Sunfield’s new classrooms appeal.

Adrian has also presented ‘Late Late Working Lunches’ for Sunfield; a series of fundraising evening events in which he interviewed a well-known guest.

Josie Lawrence

Josie has been involved with Sunfield since 1998. The children really enjoyed a trip to London to see her star in the King and I at the London Palladium in 2001.

In September 2005, Josie climbed Mount Kilimanjaro in aid of our appeal to build new classrooms and in 2009 she raised £25,000 for the same appeal through an appearance on Who Wants To Be A Millionaire.

Jasper Carrott

Jasper first came to Sunfield in 2000, to present the children with a new minibus on behalf of the Variety Club of Great Britain.

Since then he has been a huge support to us, particularly in spearheading an appeal to build a new £1 million residential house for 12 children, which he opened in 2004.

He has personally raised funds for the charity through his Christmas Cracker shows, and from an appearance on Who Wants To Be A Millionaire.

Christopher Charles Lyttelton, 12th Viscount Cobham

Twelfth Viscount Cobham, Christopher Charles Lyttelton became a patron in 2008 but there has been a long association with the Cobham family, as Hagley Hall’s land neighbours the Sunfield estate. Lord Cobham’s Father, the 10th Lord Cobham, opened the first school building in 1967.

Lord Cobham and his wife Tessa, Lady Cobham, opened up their stately home in 2008, to host a charity auction to raise funds towards the £3.5m required to build new classrooms. They later officially opened Sunfield’s new school building in September 2009.
