Felicity Kendal CBE

Felicity Kendal has been an ambassador for Royal Voluntary Service since 2011, and has played a vital part in many of our campaigns to help older people across the country.

Felicity, best known as the star of 'The Good Life' and 'Rosemary and Thyme', has even gotten stuck into a little volunteering herself, having spent the day as a Meals on Wheels volunteer, delivering healthy meals and a friendly face to older people across Liss, Hampshire in July 2012. 

Felicity was 'amazed' at the difference the work of the charity makes to the quality of life of older people.

"As we get older it’s vital that we have the support we need to live the life we choose. The work of Royal Voluntary Service allows older people to retain their independence which in turn helps them maintain their mental and physical health."

Felicity Kendal, Royal Voluntary Service ambassador

Inspired by the dedication and service provided by Anne Carty and the team at Liss Meals on Wheels, Felicity became an ambassador for our Diamond Champions campaign, which recognises and celebrates the difference older volunteers make to the lives of others.

Felicity also helped to back our 2014 campaign with Community Christmas, with the aim that no older person should have to spend Christmas alone if they don’t want to.
