Quaker philanthropist and wife of George Cadbury, chocolate maker

Dame Elizabeth Cadbury is recorded as a Patron of the British Pestalozzi Children’s Village Association in 1950.

Cadbury’s specific contribution to the charity remains undiscovered at this time. We do not yet know when she first lent her name to the Association (it was formed in 1948 and we are aware of Quaker involvement at the time of its inception). Cadbury’s subsequent relationship with Pestalozzi was short-lived as she died some 18 months later in 1951.

She had been previously been honoured internationally for her war work and for work with refugees in the First World War
