I am proud to be an ambassador for the following charities:
GRIEF ENCOUNTER - www.griefencounter.org.uk
When a child's parent or significant loved one dies, their lives change forever. As well as the sadness they feel, they are often left confused and full of fear and anxiety. Grief Encounter helps families address difficult issues such as death and we help make sense of the hurt and confusion.
BALLS TO CANCER - http://ballstocancer.co.uk
Balls to Cancer raise funds for male cancer awareness and research. Their aim is threefold, firstly to open a male only contact point for men and boys who have been diagnosed with cancer and their families, also to fund an education programme for teenagers to help them understand and take away the taboo of talking about testicular cancer and asking for help, and thirdly to fund research into treatments and ultimately a cure for this horrible disease.
ST JOHNS HOSPICE
St John's Hospice has an inpatient unit and a specialist palliative daycare facility. It is surrounded by landscaped gardens and the aim is to create a homely, relaxed, welcoming atmosphere.
BLUEBELL WOOD CHILDREN'S HOSPICE - www.bluebellwood.org
Bluebell Wood Children's Hospice cares for children and young adults with a shortened life expectancy in South Yorkshire, North Derbyshire, North Nottinghamshire and parts of North Lincolnshire.
The support offered to children by Bluebell Wood is invaluable. It costs £3 million each year to provide this care and the hospice receives no statutory government funding. It is only thanks to public support that we can continue to help as many children as we do.
Bluebell Wood is a place filled with laughter and love. We give families the chance to relax, take a break and have fun, and we help support the whole family.
