Our Young 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.

Tomos - Young Ambassador (Ystrad Mynach)
Tomos finally come into the world in November 1998 with what was to be a life changing moment. His parents discovered Tomos had Down Syndrome and a heart defect. Right! What shall we do now... I know let's treat him like any other baby, love him, enjoy him and nurture him ready for the big wide world that awaits him, and to date Tomas has become an amazing young man, his mum told us.
Tomos had stomach surgery and heart surgery which still leaves him with a leaking heart valve. He was 3 months old at Birmingham Children's Hospital and they fought medical staff and got him back home after a week. His mum knew then that Tomos would be a fighter, enjoy and fulfil his life destiny to bring sunshine and laughter into everybody's life.
Tomos started mainstream school from 3-11, he enjoys school and is keen to learn, he is loved by all the children. At 11 Tomos started in a special education school and flourishes. He is School Prefect, School Ambassador and actively involved in the school council he takes on these roles with maturity and pride.
Tomos enjoys the gym, iPad, bowling, his bike, and spending time down the caravan in Tenby. He also enjoys holidays to foreign countries and is interested in languages and foreign foods. Tomos enjoys sharing all of this with his brother Max.
Tomos is keen to help our Charity Follow Your Dreams, and help other children.
