I am so proud to be the Patron of the Pride of the Isle and to be here at this year’s awards. It is a tremendous privilege.
This is an absolutely wonderful charity and it’s so humbling to be a small part of an organisation that does so much for so many people suffering from life-limiting illnesses.
I am so grateful to Leesa, Jo and the Committee for inviting me to be here at the Annual Awards, and to be able to pay my tribute to the wonderful people of the Isle.
We should all be proud of this fantastic charity and all the good work it has done and will do in the future.
