Holly has been a Together for Short Lives’ Patron since the charity was founded in 2011, and before that she was the Patron of Children’s Hospice UK, one of the predecessor charities that merged to become Together for Short Lives. Holly got involved with our work in 2006 after visiting a children’s hospice, and meeting seriously ill children and families. She was so moved that she wanted to do something personally to support a children’s palliative care charity.
Holly has been an unwavering supporter and friend to Together for Short Lives and Children’s Hospices 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 BGC Charity Day.
Holly is best known for her TV presenting roles including This Morning which she has presented since 2009. She is also a brand ambassador for M&S and Garnier.
“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.”
