Holly became a Together for Short Lives’ Patron in 2008, soon after supporting This Morning’s Christmas Appeal for children’s hospices in 2007. Holly was so moved after visiting a children’s hospice, and meeting seriously ill children and families, that she wanted to do something personally to support a children’s palliative care charity and she chose Together for Short Lives.
Holly is best known for her current presenting roles on This Morning, Dancing on Ice and Celebrity Juice. In 2018 she joined Dec in the jungle to co-host ‘I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here!’ and also became the Brand Ambassador for high street giant M&S, launching her ‘Holly’s Must Have Edit’. Holly has been a great support and friend to Together for Short Lives ever since, helping us with our awareness-raising and fundraising activities and supporting various appeals and campaigns, including Children’s Hospice Week. This year, Holly is representing Together for Short Lives as our Patron for the annual GFI Charity Day.
“Whenever I visit a children’s hospice, I am amazed by the positive, welcoming environment and support they provide. It is clear to see that services like these are a lifeline to the families that use them. I am very proud to be a Patron of Together for Short Lives.”
