Maggie Philbin OBE

It is with regret that I announce that Maggie Philbin has come to the end of her time as Patron of VASL. Maggie was the first Patron we have had and throughout the 6 years she held this honorary post, she made an excellent contribution to our organisation.

I and the other Trustees of VASL would like to thank Maggie Philbin for her support. We particularly recall the 2 special events she hosted for us – a seminar for local businesses and a very well attended AGM when she helped us demonstrate the importance and effectiveness of our projects.

Maggie is a very busy person with her extensive media work and her challenging role as CEO of TeenTech which helps young people, their parents and teachers understand the opportunities and skills needed by contemporary industry. We are immensely grateful for the time and commitment she has given to VASL over the last 6 years. 

Maggie wrote:

“I was delighted to be introduced to the work of VASL and have been very proud to promote the work of the charity whenever I had the opportunity at conferences and events across the UK. I feel I have learnt much not only through the direct connection with VASL but the wider work I’ve carried out for the LLRCF (Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland Community Foundation).

After 6 years, I feel the time is now right for me to make room for another patron and I do so wishing you all the very best for the continued success of an organisation which needs to address so many critical social issues in the area.”

Thank you, Maggie.
