Prior's Court is immensely saddened to hear of the passing of Michael Todhunter MBE, DL.

Michael was an incredible supporter of Prior's Court, and a tireless advocate for children and young people with special educational needs.

In addition to his service as a trustee of Prior’s Court Foundation between November 2000 and January 2010, he led on a host of Prior's Court fundraising appeals from 2000 to 2015. This includes supporting the build of a residential home, Todhunter House, which was opened in 2007 and was designed to support the growing independence of older Prior’s Court residential students. The Todhunter name will forever be associated with Prior's Court through the name of this residential home.

Michael was at the very forefront of our funding appeals since the charity was founded in 1999. 

He leaves an important and lasting legacy.

Our thoughts are with the Todhunter family and Michael’s friends at this sad time.
