Felicity (Liccy) Dahl, our founder

Liccy, Roald Dahl's widow, set up the charity in memory of Roald Dahl in 1991.

Liccy and Roald's family were deeply affected by serious illness, tragedy and loss and it seemed only fitting as part of his legacy that Roald Dahl's Marvellous Children's Charity could support children and families affected by serious illness. Liccy continues to remain close to the work of the charity to this day and is Co-President with Sir Quentin Blake.

We are hugely grateful to Liccy for all of her continued work to make lives better for seriously ill children and their families. Our Roald Dahl Nurses are also extremely appreciative of her support. Thank you Liccy.
