English composer, conductor and pianist.
Listed as a Patron of the British Pestalozzi Children’s Village Association in 1950.
Later, listed as a Vice President of the Pestalozzi Children’s Village Trust in 1963.
Britten’s specific contribution to the charity remains undiscovered at this time – beyond his involvement for at least thirteen years. His strong pacifist beliefs and his experiences encountering the survivors of concentration camps at the end of the Second World War may well have contributed to his interest.
