Theo Fennell has donated over £7,000 to the Kensington and Chelsea Foundation’s Covid-19 Appeal through a series of silent auctions.
The auctions in question featured “one-of-a-kind” pieces designed by creative director Theo Fennell in his design studio, with 15% of proceeds going towards the London-based foundation.
The foundation, which raises funds for local projects providing support for vulnerable residents, has raised £700,000 in five weeks for the appeal.
The group said that such support is “particularly important” for Kensington and Chelsea, which contains “significant pockets of deprivation, especially in the north end where there is above average poverty rates, child poverty and receipt of out-of-work benefits”.
All funds raised will provide essential services including weekly care packages for elderly and vulnerable residents in the borough, support for those isolating in households which are difficult and potentially violent, and technology to connect community groups concerned with mental health.
