Bristol City Women’s midfielder Aimee Palmer is to become an ambassador for the Jessie May hospice at home care charity.
Palmer was keen to find a local charity to lend her support to and after seeing the work Jessie May do across the south west region, providing specialist palliative and respite care to terminally ill children and their families, she felt eager to lend her support.
Palmer said: “Being a professional sportsperson means that I have a platform for helping others. The opportunity to work with Jessie May and support their incredible work is an honour and a privilege. I look forward to getting to know the team and helping them to raise the profile of their charity.”
Clare Pearce, Director of Funding Development at Jessie May comments: “We are delighted to that Aimee is keen to become an ambassador for Jessie May. Having an ambassador with such a large fan base is an incredible opportunity for us to raise awareness and vital funds. We look forward to forming a great partnership”
