I am very proud to be associated with the College as a Patron because it carries out its essential work in such a calm, understated way. It is a uniquely special place, full of special people.
Without fuss, it gets on with doing the job of caring for people in need and puts all of its energies and focus into that. And did you know, it has been doing that for an amazing 120 years?
I am writing to you precisely because of the Christian traditions and values of compassion and generosity that we share.
As you read Myrtle’s story you cannot help but be inspired by her commitment, by her achievements and by her faith, and you cannot help but be moved.
You may not know it but, sadly, there are many elderly Anglicans like Myrtle who need all sorts of help and support.
This is where the College steps in, doing a truly splendid job of looking after older and elderly Clergy, Clergy spouses, widows and widowers as well as lay Anglicans who are in need of accommodation, support and care.
I am an active supporter of the College’s work. I give because I believe in the value and importance of its work to care for older and elderly people like Myrtle.
People who have devoted their lives to the service of others.

Thank you so very much.
