We are delighted to announce that celebrity husband and wife, Peter Davison and Elizabeth Morton, have joined the Williams Syndrome Foundation as charity patrons!
Peter and Elizabeth have a strong connection to Williams Syndrome as they have a 19 year old niece, Molly, who has WS – Molly and her family have been WSF members for many years. Peter is best known for his roles in All Creatures Great and Small and Dr Who and has recently been on our screens in BBC drama – Life, and Elizabeth is an actress and author. Peter is already patron of the Downs Syndrome Association and both he and Elizabeth look forward to helping us raise awareness of WS as Peter has done for the DSA for over twenty years. Although covid-19 dominated 2020, with the roll-out of the vaccine, we hope that we will again be able to host our national picnic at Regent’s Park which Peter and Elizabeth hope to attend.
“We are delighted to become patrons of the Williams Syndrome Foundation. Our experience of WS so far has been through our niece Molly, so we are excited to be meeting so many of you and your families soon. Looking forward hugely to spreading the word about Williams!” – Peter & Elizabeth
We continue to be grateful to Lady Cynthia Cooper, our Founder, who stepped down as Patron earlier this year.
