Chief Executive Blog - September

Over the last four years, I have had the pleasure in asking committed supporters of both Hospice and Rebecca House to become Young Ambassadors for us, and I can safely say that I am so very proud of everything they have achieved for both us, and personally.

This last month has seen two of our incredible Ambassadors undertake incredible achievements.

Jake Hodgson who became our Ambassador three years ago, has taken a massive step in his life and has chosen to go off Island to Myerscough College in Preston to study to be a motorcycle technician. With Jake being just 16, as you can imagine he is very nervous about heading away but he is determined and excited, which will excel him into achieving his dreams. We have been informed by Jake that he still has big plans for Hospice, and once he settles in at College, all will be revealed!

We also have Alexandra Slater who we made our Ambassador four years ago. Alexandra recently held her third and final Greatest Variety Show – An Audience with Alexandra and Friends, which saw her and some of her amazingly talented friends take to the stage to raise money for us. The night was absolutely incredible and I am in admiration of every single performer of the show – the talent on our little Island never ceases to amaze me. Alexandra has now gone back to London to continue her journey with the London School of Musical Theatre and we look forward to seeing her again on her next visit home.

Our Young Ambassadors show a commitment to Hospice that always astounds me. I couldn’t be any more proud of what they have achieved for us over the last four years and I am truly excited when I think about the possibilities of what they could achieve into the future.

I’d like to thank both of them from the bottom of my heart for their dedication to the Hospice Team, they are truly inspiring, and I’m sure you will all join me in wishing them every luck in the world for everything they will achieve going forward.
