Patron has incorporated a strong charitable ethos as part of its vision ever since its establishment in 1999. We strive to make a difference in the world and to include all members of the team in achieving this goal.
Through the Patron Armed Forces Initiative, Patron has helped to raise close to £1.5m for the Royal Marines Charity, which supports ex-servicemen in overcoming physical and mental challenges suffered in combat. Most recently, Keith Breslauer joined 35 serving and veterans of the Royal Marines & the Royal Navy, including 14 suffering from disabilities in a recreation of Operation Frankton, a daring 1942 raid which involved an 85 mile paddle and a 100 mile yomp cross country in France.
Through the Patron Schools Initiative, Patron supports the Prince's Teaching Institute (which Keith Breslauer currently chairs), and support the building and maintenance of schools in the rural areas of Nepal.
Team participation is encouraged through the sponsorship of activities such as the London Royal Parks half marathon, and other challenges. In addition, in 2017 Patron inaugurated the Patron Greatness lecture series, inviting inspiring speakers to reflect on their experiences.
