About Us

Founded in 1985, the Hobson Charity is the Hobson Family’s grant giving charity, originally founded by Sir Ronald Hobson, KCVO (1921–2017) who was a British entrepreneur, business-owner and dedicated philanthropist.

The work of the Charity continues today with the same enthusiasm under the chairmanship of Lady Hobson, Sir Ron’s wife. She is supported by four trustees, all of whom are family members.

The day to day operations of the Charity are overseen by the Administrator and a small team.

The trustees are: –

Lady Patricia Marina Hobson OBE (Chair)
Deborah Hobson
Jennifer Richardson
Elizabeth Kelsall
Emma Richardson
