Our Patrons

Our Patrons are Joanna Lumley, Radzi Chinyanganya and Maggie Alphonsi.

Joanna Lumley became our first patron in 2009. A familiar figure on stage and screen, who is also known for her advocacy and activist work, her career has spanned six decades to date.

Radzi and Maggie both took part in Gareth Malone's All-Star Choir in 2014 which also included some young participants from Blue Elephant. They became patrons after getting to know Blue Elephant's work. Maggie had just led the English Women's Rugby Team to World Cup Victory at the time, establishing herself as a household name and role model to many.

Radzi is a television presenter. Like Maggie, he is passionate about sport and covers many sporting events but he is best known to our young people as a presenter on Blue Peter from 2013 - 19.

Radzi took part in Celebrity Mastermind in early March 2020 and chose Blue Elephant as his charity, raising vital funds for us at what proved to be a very vulnerable time.
