Death of Berkshire Youth Patron

Berkshire Youth is sorry to announce the death of Sir Philip Wroughton.

Sir Philip Wroughton KCVE KStJ, The Lord Lieutenant of Berkshire (from 1995 unitl 2008) and Patron of Berkshire Youth, has sadly passed away.

Sir Philip was a great supporter of Berkshire Youth and a real advocate for young people and especially for those young people living in rural communities.

Sir Philip truly believed that we should be preventing young people from getting into harm and was a very keen supporter of the work of Berkshire Youth, taking a great deal of interest in our projects and programmes.

Lately, he had been watching and supporting The Waterside Project with real interest.

Berkshire Youth would like to extend their sympathy to his family.
