Charities and Volunteer Groups

I am honoured to be patron of several local charities and voluntary organisations, including the White Lodge Centre, which provides support for thousands of disabled children, and Egham Museum, which recently commemorated the 800th anniversary of the Magna Carta.

Although my ministerial role as Chancellor of the Exchequer prevents me from supporting to specific campaigns in Parliament as this may jeopardise Cabinet collective responsibility, within the local community I am greatly supportive of local charity causes and campaigns, advising on community funding grants and attending local fundraising efforts.
