Richard Kornicki Esq CBE Deputy Lieutenant of Ealing recently paid a visit to St Ann’s School in Hanwell.

He learned about the work of the recently formed charity which supports the work of the secondary school which caters for pupils with special educational needs when reading an article about a fundraising carol concert it held this December in the Ealing Broadway Shopping Centre.

This prompted him to get in touch to arrange a visit which took place this Monday (5 February). During his visit he said he was highly impressed by the students' level of engagement and the supportive nature of the staff. Afterwards he told the Trustees he would be offering his patronage to the Charity.

The Greater London Lieutenancy supports the Monarch and the Royal Family in across the capital with the aim of enhance Londoners’ sense of belonging and increasing social inclusion.

Because of London, the non-statutory title and office of Representative Deputy Lieutenant (DL) was created in 1951 by Viscount Alanbrooke. The Lord-Lieutenant selects one of his DLs to represent him in each of the 32 London Boroughs (but not the City). Their main function is to represent the Lieutenancy and occasionally the Lord-Lieutenant at civic and other official functions within their boroughs, and also to promote its voluntary, charitable and youth activities.

St Ann's School is a school focusing on children with special educational needs. The school caters to 110 secondary students.
