Our ambassadors play a vital role in raising our profile

We have a number of ambassadors across the country, who are passionate about what we do. They work in partnership with us so that we can build on our ambassador Scheme. We provide support to them within their role, along with the resources they need to spread awareness of our work as wide and far as possible!

Our ambassadors are well informed and can speak confidently about us and our charity’s priorities. Should you meet one, ask about our work and how you can support the charity.

Members of Round Table, 41 Club, Tangent and Ladies Circle are often the first to take up this role. Although we have also recruited parents, young people and wider community ambassadors too.

Angela Hook

Hello Everyone! I am a member of Tangent, and Agora E-Club UK, having previously enjoyed many years in Ladies Circle (including two years as National Media & PR Officer).

The Round Table Family is a family like no other, bringing me into contact with some truly amazing people over the years – locally, nationally, and internationally! As well as offering me your friendship, I have seen – countless times – your dedication to helping those who need support, whether that is through voluntary work, fundraising, or simply giving up some of your time to help somebody in need.

I am incredibly honoured to have been asked to represent you as an Ambassador to the Round Table Children’s Wish Charity, and I will do my utmost to support our charity in helping to fundraise and fulfil family’s wishes, and to bring some happiness into their lives during the most difficult of times. Together, we can make a real difference in helping to make children’s wishes come true.

Dominic Brittain

Hello, Dominic here from Leigh-on-Sea Round Table 909 and past Essex Round Tables Area 33 Chairman 2021 – 2022.

Having joined The Association of Round Tables in 2015, I have had the privilege of making countless friends who are like minded individuals, looking for ways to help and give back to the community through means of fundraising and the support of charitable endeavours.

My personal journey in Round Table led me to working with Round Table Children’s Wish by means of participating in the 2023 TCS London Marathon, along with many others, raising important funds that are needed to help the children that are so deserving of the wishes they request. I was particularly honoured to be invited to join the charity in handing out a wish to a deserving recipient and their parent, something I can be proud of knowing I contributed largely towards.

Being asked to be an ambassador for Round Table Children’s Wish is not something I take lightly. The work they do to raise funds and aid the children who need their help is admirable and I intend to do whatever I can do help aid them in achieving their goals going into the future.

Lets make those wishes a reality!

“A happy child makes for a happy family, even during the sad times in life. Round Table Children’s Wish is all about making that moment possible with just a little wish!”

Richard Carter

Now an Ex-Tabler I joined Round Table in the late 1970s. The friendships and fellowship of our Clubs has been a big and most enjoyable part of my life. Service and community involvement have always been a strong part of Round Table and the formation of this charity came from one Tabler’s personal experience which in typical Round Table fashion led to the creation of this small but dedicated charity over thirty years ago. I am delighted to become involved and to help as best I can to ensure that the wishes of those young people in need are achieved.

My working life was all in business in various parts of the country and with a variety of different companies. I have two children and three grandchildren and appreciate the good times with them whilst also understanding that life can throw you difficulties and hardships for which charities like this can provide an element of support and relief.

Manuel Andrew Martins

I joined Round Table in 1970 and took to it like a duck to water.  I have raised with the help of my clubs’ significant amount of money and helped and changed the lives of many people of all ages.

Our big success was fundraising to purchase a static caravan and basing it at White Sands Holiday Camp, Bognor Regis for about 10 years and giving up to twenty families a year a much need break from their family member illnesses. That involved interviewing and selecting families to ascertain their individual needs and arranging a roster for Table members to drive the individual family to the caravan and returning the following week.

Community Service has been my Manta all my life.  I have now been in 41 Club for thirty-five years and am a fully paid-up member of 4 clubs, Aipla Kights (based in Norwich), Kingston upon Thames, Medway, and Hamble Valley and Fareham 41 Clubs, and continue my community service.  I have housed homeless people in my own home helping them to prepare and set out on their own in employment and having their own accommodation.

I have worked with foodbanks in both Kingston upon Thames and Fareham. I am presently the Volunteer Coordinator Covid Clinics for the local PCN consisting of 4 medical practices.  I am heavily involved in Youth Football helping young people achieve their full potential in sport.

I am delighted to be an Ambassador for Round Table Children’s Wish.

Daniel Szanyi

Hi I’m Dan, from Bournemouth Round Table.

Delighted to be an ambassador for RTCW.

As an ambassador for RTCW, I am dedicated to supporting their cause and making a difference in the lives of these brave children. Join me in being a part of this extraordinary journey to bring happiness to those who need it most.

Adrian Kibbler MCIPR/NUJ

Hello, I am Adrian and I want to do my bid to help children and families facing challenges.

I am a journalist and a Public Relations and Communications professional who has worked from some global businesses including British Airways, National Rail, Severn Trent plc and the Environment Agency, before setting up my own small PR/Communications Agency that has now diversified into international trade. We work for businesses in the UK and overseas, ranging from start-ups to global corporations.

I am also a member of the National Liberal Club, the Frontline Club that supports journalists working in dangerous places, London Press Club and am a director of Birmingham Press Club.

It amazes and inspires me how children and families cope with adversity. The charity sector is a crowded marketplace but it is so often the small things that make a difference and create a lasting memory. Small charities can find it hard to get heard through the noise.

Whilst our charity is small, it can make a huge impact upon the lives of the children and families that it touches.

I hope that in a small way I will be able to bring joy and happy memories to the children and families who day in and day out cope heroically with challenges that most of us can hardly imagine.

If you are interested in this role or would like an ambassador to give a talk to your group or school, please get in touch.
