Our Ambassadors

Sue Ryder is proud of its Ambassadors and celebrity supporters. Together, they help to raise awareness of the charity and allow us to reach even more people who may need our help.

Whether it is supporting our fundraising or promoting our palliative care and bereavement support, our Ambassadors and celebrity supporters play a vital role in helping us achieve our goals.
