Chantry Robinson Fund

The Benefactors


les robinson


Les Robinson was born in London on August 23rd 1921. He was greatly loved by the whole family and by all who knew him. He made everyone he met feel special, just by talking to them and even more by listening to them!  For that moment they were the centre of his universe and they felt they mattered. He spent his life making a positive difference to others.

He died in June 2008 when he was almost 87.  He left everything to his two daughters and when he talked to them for the last time, he asked them to use his money to make a difference.

ann chantry-price



Ann Chantry-Price, his younger daughter, is a retired nurse who specialised in Occupational Health.  She is also a Freeman of the Guild of Nurses and a Court Assistant.  The Guild’s need for charitable funds seemed to Ann an opportunity to meet her father’s wishes and to support the Guild and nurses who make a positive difference through their care for others.

abi wren


Abi Wren, Ann’s younger daughter, is also a nurse and Freeman of the Guild of Nurses. She is helping Ann to set up and oversee this fund so they can ensure Les’ legacy does indeed go on to make a difference for a very long time to come.  To ensure this, the donation is being invested and the interest earned will fund awards to nurses making a difference to professional standards and those for whom they provide care.

Ann and Abi would welcome donations from others who would like to join in recognising nurses, retired or working, who are making a real difference. The Company of Nurses Charitable Trust also has a general fund so do mention which fund you wish to support when making your donation.  Donations increase the size of the fund and the interest earned can then be used for helping nurses to make a positive difference to patients. So your help enables us to do more every year.
