Dr John R Ashton, CBE

“As a local doctor with vivid memories of playing in Strawberry Field as a child, and a conviction that those with learning disabilities are entitled to a full life, I am passionate about The Salvation Army’s vision for this special place. When completed, the magic that inspired John and Paul will continue to inspire a new generation of very special people!” 

"It’s a wonderful idea that The Salvation Army is going to cultivate youngsters in the precious soil of Strawberry Field."

Julia Baird, Honorary President
