Our new patron

Comedian Francesca Martinez has been with us since the beginning of our journey as an accredited Charity. She is admired and respected not only for her work as a comedian and actress but also her work campaigning for the acceptance of disability. It is an honour to have her supporting the charity.

Having had first hand experiences of fighting the sometimes crippling ‘disability’ label, The Misfits is not only a charity I admire, but also one I can identify with. They use their performances to tackle those negative stereotypes head on and they do it with passion, class and comedy. The Misfits are a fantastic group of inspiring individuals and talented actors, and I would implore anyone to go and see their performances if they have the opportunity. You won’t be disappointed.
