When not breeding horses, Caroline is a Trustee of St. John's Church, Plumpton Charitable Trust, is involved with St John Ambulance, Northamptonshire, and as a supporter of the homelessness charity ‘Crisis’ for many years intends to promote the work of the Hope Centre in Northampton in her Year. Every other year she gets involved with a fund raising skiing challenge called the Coeur Blanc in Meribel which supports a different youth related charity on each occasion but with a theme of supporting those which teach new skills and give hope to the less privileged. This year the event raised almost £260,000 with 20 teams skiing approximately 85 kilometres in a day.
Caroline’s husband David is a Chartered Surveyor and they have two daughters: Olivia who works in Hong Kong and Camilla an equine vet. Her interests include skiing, racing, gardening and opera.
By her appointment as High Sheriff, Caroline is following in the public office footsteps of her parents; her father a Justice of the Peace and former Lord Mayor of Westminster and her mother a High Sheriff of Kent.
