We are delighted that our Founder and Trustee, Fran Perrin, has been awarded an OBE in the Queen’s Birthday Honours in recognition of her charitable services, particularly in response to the coronavirus emergency, and also for setting up and driving 360Giving, of which Fran is Founder and Chair.
You can read more about the Indigo Trust’s emergency funding in response to Covid-19 here. The first round of funding included the National Emergencies Trust, Trussell Trust and The Oxfordshire Community Foundation. A further phase of funding has focused on access to justice and supporting BME communities, particularly in relation to violence against women & girls and mental health.
We are equally delighted that Will Perrin, a trustee of both Indigo Trust and 360Giving, has also been honoured for his services to Technology and Internet Safety Policy. Fran and Will are among 1,495 people who received an award. You can read more about 360Giving and Fran’s response to her award here.
