Patron Lynda Bellingham OBE


In October 2014, the nation mourned the loss of a national treasure, Lynda Bellingham.

Lynda was a wonderful friend and supporter of Dot Com Children’s Foundation. Together with Sharon Evans, former journalist and CEO of the Foundation, she helped to launch the charity in its early years, and continued to give her time for free throughout her life. She even acted in our series of soap operas for the education programme, ‘Values Versus Violence’, along with her son Michael.

As one of our longest serving patrons, we have created this tribute to her, with some of our favourite memories.
This video also includes a statement from the CEO of Dot Com Children’s Foundation, Sharon Evans.

Sharon and Lynda Bellingham remained friends right up until her passing. Her husband Michael Pattemore (better known as Mr Spain!) continues to be a friend of the charity.
