Give Us Time wouldn’t have such a great impact if it wasn’t for the dedication of its Trustees and Ambassadors. Their commitment and understanding of the importance of our charitable cause enables the Charity to go the extra mile and do its best to help military families in need.
At our annual Fundraising event, held at the Corinthia in November 2016, our Ambassador and Trustee Lady Kitty Spencer delivered a powerful and moving speech underlining the importance of the family and of Give Us Time work.
Lady Kitty Spencer spoke about her personal experience and how she was deeply touched by the stories of the families who had been on a holiday, through Give Us Time, and the remarkable effect it had on their lives. “We don’t claim to be an ultimate fix”, she explained, highlighting how the feedback received from our beneficiary showed “how much of an impact just a simple break can be in terms of reconnecting as a family unit”. Lady Kitty Spencer explained that Give Us Time aimed to “provide a chance for families to emerge back into a normal world” after suffering injuries, losses or long periods away from their loved ones.
Having thanked all those who had supported and continued to support the Charity, Lady Kitty Spencer concluded by saying that “Give Us Time was a brilliant and noble charity, tackling a serious need with urgency and sensitivity. I could not be prouder of speaking on its behalf”.
