Knorr shares with Pitzhanger a passion for community. Before, but especially during the Covid pandemic, Knorr has been very involved supporting the arts and many other charitable causes: she has raised funds for Support in Mind (Scotland), Crisis, Refuge, the Trussell Trust, Chiswick House and with the funds raised from her involvement with the the Artist Support Pledge initiative will be publishing a new book with proceeds going to Black Minds Matter.
