Our Patron

Baroness (Tanni) Grey-Thompson DBE

We are delighted that Tanni has been our Patron since 2015. Prior to that, she was a Trustee of the Snowdon Trust from 2011 to 2015.

About Baroness Grey-Thompson DBE: Tanni was appointed as a working crossbench peer in 2010 but she is perhaps best known from her days as a Paralympic athlete, winning a total of 11 gold medals in 5 Paralympic Games. She retired from competition in 2007. However, she still plays an active role in the administration of sport and is regularly seen on television, commentating on events.

Our Patron

I'm a huge fan of Snowdon Trust.

The reality is that we all know this… Disabled people find it harder to get into education, harder to get into work – it is just harder.

Everyone should make the most of the opportunities they have. It's about having a goal and a dream and seeing what you can achieve.
