My involvement with ARC is to inspire younger people to get involved with a fantastic charity that does life-changing work.
It’s a great honour to have been asked to be an Ambassador for ARC Cancer Support Centres. I know first-hand the difference the support provided by ARC makes to families who are faced with a cancer diagnosis.
Raising awareness about psychological support services for people going through cancer is a cause very close to my heart and that is why I am so committed to doing anything that the team at ARC needs to promote their fundraising efforts. It is vital that they can continue to provide this free support especially as demand continues to grow.
"I'm continuously amazed by the life-changing work Arc do in supporting patients and families living through cancer - something that has touched us all. I am honoured to be an an ARC ambassador to help promote such a vital service for people facing a diagnosis."
