Our Ambassadors

 Ambassadors support us by raising vital funds and also raising awareness of our charity in their local community.  Our ambassadors are the face of our charity.

Our charity ambassadors:

  • Organise fundraising events in their area
  • Attend cheque presentations
  • Give short talks about our charity and the work we do
  • Place collection boxes in local businesses such as restaurants and shops
  • Identify new fundraising opportunities in their area such as Charity of the Year, Community trusts
  • Source auction and raffle prizes
  • Help out at workshops
  • Inspire children and young people with Learning Disabilities to follow their dreams!

We are hugely committed to supporting our volunteers, who make such a valuable difference to our charity.  Ambassadors must be over 18, or if under 18 have a parent/guardian working alongside them.

We also require Celebrity Ambassadors who can act as a figurehead for our Charity.  An ambassador is not a Trustee and does not have any of the legal responsibilities of a Trustee or for the management of the organisation.  The purpose of an Ambassador is to lend high-profile support to the children and young people with learning disabilities supported by our charity. This will, in turn, support many of the charity’s functions like fundraising, campaigning, public relations, marketing and awareness-building for our cause.

Harry - Young Ambassador (Farnborough)

Harry was a Mothers Day special delivery in 2012 and his super special extras were a huge shock to Mummy and Daddy.  Harry although walking still struggles with this due to low muscle tone, and requires lots of help and support.  Mummy, Daddy, Harry and his two brothers help to raise awareness of Down’s Syndrome and also want to be able to support other local families with the initial shock.

Harry is a huge character in our family and always gets away with so much, just by flashing us one of his cheeky grins.  We feel Harry being a Young Ambassador for Follow Your Dreams will be a fantastic way to put something back in and really get involved with fundraising, and importantly raising awareness.
