Sir David Wootton, former Lord Mayor of London, has agreed to lend his support and expertise in his new role as Lifelites patron.
Sir David was introduced to Lifelites through his role as both a high ranking Freemason, and as Master of the Worshipful Company of Information Technologists, a livery company for senior practitioners in the information technology industry.
He devotes much of his time to supporting charities and other non-profit organisations. He has previously worked with organisations such as The National Trust, The Institute of Cancer Research, the King’s Fund, the Charles Dickens Museum, the City of London Festival and the Misys Charitable Foundation, among others. He was knighted in the 2013 New Year Honours for services to legal business, charity and the City of London.
Sir David said: “I am delighted to be in two organisations that are big supporters of Lifelites and am therefore doubly keen to support them. I recently visited their office and was shown what the dedicated team do there by Simone, the terrific Chief Executive. They have a musical instrument you can play just by passing your hand through a beam of light, a screen you can paint on in different colours electronically just with a move of the eye, and the amazing Magic Carpet. All products of great imagination which transform these children’s lives and give them the chance to do what we all take for granted. Such wonderful work.”
Simone Enefer-Doy, Chief Executive of Lifelites, said: “We are bowled over that Sir David has agreed to become a patron and support the work of Lifelites. We have no doubt that his status in the City Community will be perfect to assist us in raising the profile of Lifelites among this important audience.”
 He is currently Assistant Grand Master of the United Grand Lodge of London: http://www.ugle.org.uk/about/whos-who/governance/161-assistant-grand-master
