“The help has been tantamount in enabling me to run my little car - I live in the country and would be almost housebound without it.”
Sue Carlton-Jones is based in South Wales and is a former dancer with the Royal Ballet Company and former Ballet Mistress of the Scottish Ballet.
Sue says: “I am now fully retired and in the past 10 years have had three operations on my feet; two operations on my eyes, as well as a collapsed cervical vertebrae and painful back and leg problems. I am managing well despite these. The help has been tantamount in enabling me to run my little car – I live in the country and would be almost housebound without it.”
With the support of the DPF, she is able to spend more of her time crafting, knitting, and tending to her garden, as well as getting around more easily.
The fund recently helped Sue by arranging to refurbish her home. This grant was provided in collaboration with Royal Opera House Benevolent Fund.
