Mrs Jennifer Tate became Patron of Crowborough Community First Responders in July 2016. Married to David, a former High Sheriff of East Sussex and current serving Deputy Lieutenant, they have 2 sons and moved to Crowborough in 1971, having also lived abroad for 6 years, spending time in Miami and Zambia in connection with David’s work at Tate & Lyle. Jennifer’s interests include piano, tennis, skiing and golf in which she has not only played for the county, but served as County President. Other interests include breeding and showing sheep, and a staged event walking her sheep over London Bridge raised over £47,000 for charity. Actively fundraising for charities over the last 15 years, the Bridge Ladder that Jennifer runs has donated the funds to our scheme that have allowed the scheme to purchase in full 2 AEDs (Automatic External Defibrillators), a vital potentially lifesaving piece of equipment.
Jennifer and David are also Legacy Ambassadors for the Tate Galleries.
