Giving something back

Giving time to charities from my perspective is even more worthwhile than cash at times. I loved every minute working and supporting not for profits over the years and aim to spend a lot more time as I grow older. Here’s some of the charity work I am privileged to be involved in.

I am proud to support such a worthwhile cause. The Chakravarty Cup – named very kindly by HRH The Prince of Wales himself after a patron of The Prince’s Trust, Saroj Chakravarty, is an annual event created to raise funds and sponsorships for the charities supported by The Royal Family. This year’s charities include The Prince’s Trust, WellChild and the Henry van Straubenzee Memorial Fund. I am currently looking to connect with potential sponsors for our next Polo Day September 2017. Please do email me for more information for what is a very special day
