Huddersfield based member Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice is delighted to announce that Graham Leslie and Nina Hossain have accepted their invitations to become Ambassadors for the charity.
With Huddersfield as their home town, both Graham Leslie and Nina Hossain are already keen supporters and actively involved with the charity.
Graham Leslie has most recently funded the charity’s Legacies campaign and Nina Hossain helped to launch the Tea Party Campaign in August, attending the tea party with her own children on Yorkshire Day at the hospice for the charity’s children and families.
Peter Branson, Chief Executive of Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice says ‘We are thrilled that both Graham Leslie and Nina Hossain have accepted our invitation to become Ambassadors of our charity. They are both already extremely passionate and supportive of the work that we do. Their role as Ambassadors will be to champion our cause and continue to support specific campaigns and events to help us build awareness and reach out to more families who need our help.’
Graham Leslie and Nina Hossain will join the Charity’s existing Ambassadors, Hannah Cockroft (MBE, British Wheel Chair Athlete, Paralympic Gold Medalist) and Daniel Lloyd (British Racing Car Driver, Champion of the Renault Clio UK Winter Cup).
Chamber Marketing Manager, Ellie Lyon visited the new ambassadors last week and heard first hand what the additional titles to their growing portfolio’s meant to them.
Graham Leslie advised that he was looking forward to becoming an ambassador to enhance and promote the great work that Forget Me Not does. He commented “I would like to help the charity to become more commercially independent and attract more philanthropic people into Forget Me Not to help create further opportunities.” Nina Hossain reiterated Graham’s support and interest in raising the commercial profile of the Chamber’s charity member to enable a strong future.
Nina advised that £2.8 million is required each and every year to keep Forget Me Not’s model secure. Nina further explained “I am hoping that I can help in any way to get the message out about how vital Forget Me Not is. There are still around 700 families that could use the service if only they knew about it.”
