The Barbara and Philip Denny Trust

The Barbara and Philip Denny Charitable Trust started work in 2009 with the aim of keeping alive the names and memories of this remarkable couple who both lived all their lives in West London. They were married for 55 years, having met during the war as volunteers in Fire Service. Barbara was a journalist, historian and author and Philip Denny was the son of the children’s book illustrator Alice Denny.

The trustees have now been able to make annual gifts to a small number of carefully selected charities that reflect Barbara and Philip’s particular interests and way of life and are delighted to support the House of Illustration's residency programme.
