Our Goodwill Ambassadors are at the sharp end of our work, heading up key projects and highlighting important issues which will make a significant difference to our work.
Major Tim Peake took The Trust to new heights when he ran the 2016 London Marathon on board the International Space Station, in aid of The Trust. He has subsequently donated the proceeds of his three successful books towards our work.
His ability to inspire young people when it comes to careers in Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) is unmatched and he has spent time with Trust on a number of projects, including one supporting 600 young people, around 60% of who are female, develop STEM skills in Cardiff.
Fearne Cotton is passionate about mental health and wellbeing having written books and presented podcasts on the subject. She will be leading on mental health initiatives as part of her role within The Trust.
Journalist and breakfast TV host and Naga Munchetty is chairing our UK2030 taskforce, which is working with government, the business sector, policy makers and young people themselves to ensure they have the skills and opportunity to lead the economy of the future.
Hollywood superstar Luke Evans has come a long way from his childhood in Wales, but now he’s using his platform as a leading man to raise money to help young people growing up in Wales today. By working with Omaze, he has already given a significant boost to Welsh fundraising by serenading the two lucky competition winners over an exclusive dinner.
Another Hollywood heavy hitter who is stepping up to bat for The Trust is Idris Elba. As someone who was himself supported by The Trust to go to drama school in his youth, he’s now giving back by working with us to raise awareness of our work among a wider audience.
Dunkirk and Venom star Tom Hardy CBE has been involved with the Trust for almost 10 years, launching our current Youth Can Do It campaign - aimed at empowering Britain’s young people – and meeting people who have been supported through our schemes.
