Carolyn Hitt Patron
Our latest Patron, we are very fortunate at Velindre Fundraising to have the support of Carolyn Hitt.
Carolyn has written and presented television and radio series on the arts, popular culture, consumer issues, women’s issues, history and sport for Radio 4, BBC Wales and ITV Wales, and has her insightful column for Media Wales is essential reading.
Carolyn first became an Ambassador for Velindre Fundraising in 2013 after her mother was treated at Velindre and has continued to support the Hospital ever since.
An experienced and accomplished after dinner speaker and compere, Carolyn has spoken at a variety of Velindre fundraising events, and joined us on our 150th anniversary trek in Patagonia in November 2015 and raised almost £30,000 in sponsorship.
One of the things I take most pride in, is being an ambassador for Velindre, the Cancer Centre which has been providing support to Welsh patients and their families for nearly 60 years. I know from my late mother’s experience of being treated at Velindre what an incredible place it is.
