Mrs Elizabeth Singer DL SRN
Elizabeth Singer (Liz) was born and brought up in Hereford. She trained at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Birmingham and is a qualified nurse. She put her career on hold while her three sons grew up and now concentrates on charity work. She has been a voluntary fundraiser for the children’s charity Barnardo’s for many years and became the National Chair for the Appeals Advisory Board (AAB) who represent the fundraising volunteers.
She was High Sheriff of Mid Glamorgan in 2014/15 and during that that time she supported the work carried out at Parc Prison Bridgend by Invisible Walls Wales who reach out to the families of prisoners. Her aim was to raise awareness of the project and raise funds to allow this work to continue. This was achieved by organising a Celebrity Tug-of-War Competition and in her year raised over £30,000. Also in her year she was introduced to MPCT. The Lord Lieutenant of Mid Glamorgan appointed her a Deputy Lieutenant and in this capacity attends events as the Queen’s representative.
“I first became aware of MPCT when I was High Sheriff of Mid Glamorgan and attended an awards ceremony. I have no military experience myself, but I have been involved with Barnardo’s for over 40 years and many of the learners at MPCT have similar backgrounds to the youngsters Barnardo’s work with. They enable them to turn their lives around and reach their potential and become good citizens. MPCT teaches them team work, to have self respect, and live
fit and healthy lives. I was delighted to accept an invitation to become a patron and am happy to support them whenever I can. I would also like to say that the organisation has excellent communications skills”.
