Michael Williams MBE, Lord Lieutenant of East Lothian
We were delighted to welcome Michael Williams MBE, Lord Lieutenant of East Lothian as a Patron in September 2018. Michael served in the Royal Tank Regiment for 20 years before settling with his family in East Lothian in 1986. He has been a very keen adopter of conservation measures and is enthusiastic about a ‘sympathetic’ farming system. He has been involved in a number of conservation organisations and was awarded the MBE for services to biodiversity, conservation and agriculture in East Lothian. He is a staunch supporter of the work of Fostering Compassion.
Mr Maxwell and Lady Sarah Ward
Max and Sarah Ward live at Stobshiel House and Garden in East Lothian. Stobshiel Garden is opened by arrangement through Scotland’s Gardens Scheme. The Scheme facilitates the raising of money for charity through helping garden owners, mostly private, to open their gardens to the public whilst making the whole experience inspiring, rewarding and enjoyable for all involved. Max and Sarah have always had a great love of animals and are huge supporters of what we do. We were delighted to welcome Max and Sarah as Patrons from September 2018.
