Sir Donald Sinden CBE
We are saddened by the death of Sir Donald Sinden. Sir Donald was president of the Royal Theatrical Fund for 30 years, before retiring in 2012 and handing over to Robert Lindsay.
He was much loved by all and was a wonderfully caring man – always very passionate about the work of the Fund and the beneficiaries we helped. He will be so very missed by all at the RTF.
Every year The Royal Theatrical Fund
provides support for over 400 people
of all ages who have worked in the
entertainment industry. They are people
in need as a result of illness, accident
or old age.
The Fund assists by way of monthly allowance, one off grants, help with domestic bills and shortfalls in nursing and residential home fees. The Directors are aware that many artistes find it hard to seek assistance. The desire to maintain independence in their own homes is understood and respected, as is complete confidentiality and a warmly compassionate response to any appeal.
