Three more high profile supporters have joined the Childrens Trusts already sterling line-up of vice-presidents, which includes Elaine Page, Richard Hammond, Joan Collins, Michael Aspel and Phil Tufnell.
Joining the stars are television sports presenter Suzanne Dando; Sally Kettle, the first woman to have rowed the Atlantic twice; and Phil Packer, who suffered severe spinal injuries while on active service in 2008 and has since founded the British Inspiration Trust.
We are delighted, says Andrew Ross, chief executive at the Childrens Trust, which is based in Tadworth. Their appointment reflects the enthusiastic support all three have already shown for the Trust, generously giving their time to raise awareness of our work with severely disabled children.
As vice-presidents, they will help to raise awareness of the Childrens Trust and its services whenever time permits, including attending special events and supporting fundraising initiatives, either by taking part, or being a spokesperson.
