Jessie May is a charity that holds a special place in the heart of my whole family. They supported my cousins, Francesca and Josephine, during their lives and the support given to my Auntie and Uncle and the rest of the family was just immeasurable. From that time, I have been in awe of the work the charity and their team provide to both the children they care for and families within the community. Because of this, when the Trust asked me to be an ambassador I was honoured and am very proud to support the charity now in an official manner.
