TV Star Jack Ashton Named QVH Charity’s First Ambassador
Actor Jack Ashton, best known for playing Rev Tom Hereward in the popular Sunday evening BBC television series Call the Midwife was named the Queen Victoria Hospital (QVH) Charity’s first ambassador in the autumn.
The charity, established in 1996 supports the work of the QVH which provides life-changing reconstructive surgery, burns care and rehabilitation services for adults and children.
Speaking about his QVH Charity role, Jack said: “I’m excited to give my support to QVH Charity to help them continue to raise money to support the hospital by funding ground breaking research, provide equipment not routinely funded by the NHS, and make sure patients have the best possible experience.”
QVH is a leading specialist centre for reconstructive surgery and rehabilitation, helping people disfigured by accidents or disease.
The QVH Charitable Fund helps support vital work like research projects to find new treatments, providing more and better equipment as well as improving our wards, clinics and waiting rooms.
Camilla Slattery, head of fundraising for QVH Charity, said: “With the help of Jack and our supporters we are passionate about raising vital funds needed to make a real difference to patients.”
