Martin McMillan OBE, Chair of Her Royal Highness The Princess Royal Respite Fund For Carers
Martin has been involved with numerous charities for the past 35 years including: chairing The North West Full Stop Appeal for the NSPCC; National Board Member for the Full Stop appeal; Deputy Chair of the Halle Orchestra; founding Board member of the Cheshire Community Foundation; and Chair of the National Garden Scheme.
Through his work with the National Garden Scheme he became aware of the great demands put on voluntary unpaid carers and the need to provide them with respite care.
Martin founded an advertising and publishing business at the age of 23, building it up to become the largest of its kind. He was awarded the OBE in the 2012 Queen’s Birthday Honours list for services to charity.
His other interests are gardens, the countryside and golf.
