Trudie Styler becomes a Patron of Julia's House

Actress and film director Trudie Styler has become a Patron of Julia's House, the Dorset and Wiltshire children's hospice charity.

Trudie, who has a home in Wiltshire which she shares with her husband Sting, said: "As a Patron of this wonderful charity I will do my utmost to raise funds and spread awareness to support the invaluable work of Julia's House."

Trudie first became interested in Julia's House after hearing about plans to build a Wiltshire children's hospice at a fundraising event hosted by film director Guy Ritchie and his wife Jacqui, who are also both Patrons.

Afterwards, she and Sting invited more than 170 Julia's House mums, dads and children to spend a wonderfully relaxing day as their guests in the beautiful grounds of Lake House, their home near Amesbury.

Trudie and Sting enjoyed mingling, chatting and posing for pictures. One of the high points for the children was when Trudie brought out some of her pets including Irish wolfhound puppies and a Shetland pony.

"Sting and I have hosted many wonderful events at Lake House, our family home in Wiltshire, " said Trudie. "One that will always stick in our memories as an exceptional and special occasion was when children, siblings and parents from Julia's House, came to us for a family day out in the summer sunshine.

"It gave us great pleasure to offer some respite and relaxation to these lovely people who cope with stress, exhaustion and heartache on a daily basis. The children we met that day touched our hearts."

Now in her new role as Patron Trudie has arranged a series of lunches and garden tours for Julia's House mums at the house - the first of these will be next month  -  and is hosting a private summer drinks party fundraiser.

Trudie has also donated a flowering cherry tree to be planted in the grounds of Julia's House Devizes, the new Wiltshire children's hospice, which will be officially opened on 6th May.
