Following the appointment of Tom Shearer MBE as WWSF ambassador in May this year, the Foundation is delighted to announce the appointment of two more ambassadors. We are delighted that Laura Hardie and Sean McPhee have agreed to be WWSF ambassadors.
Colin McGinn, WWSF vice Chair said: It is vital that WWSF has eyes, ears and voices all over the County so we can maximise our presence and impact in our community. We stated back in May that Tom Shearer’s appointment would be followed by others and we are proud and excited to welcome Laura and Sean as our new ambassadors. As our community opens up, WWSF will be stepping up our presence to support great causes and great people across East Lothian. This will start in earnest with the resumption of our annual walk on 18 September and our WWSF Ball in November. With Tom, Laura and Sean supporting our existing Board and our tremendous group of ‘Scotters’, WWSF will be a formidable force for good.
Laura Hardie has professional background in events management and fundraising and will bring a wealth of knowledge and enthusiasm to WWSF. Laura said: I am really honoured to have been asked to become a WWSF ambassador. Having been involved in various significant fundraising campaigns I hope I can use my skills to help raise awareness of the work WWSF does and help raise funds so we can continue to help so many in East Lothian. I’m really excited to get started in my new role to help support our local community.
Sean McPhee has been involved with WWSF from the beginning through family ties with our founder Scott Glynn. Sean also has a background in events management and has already earned his WWSF stripes by organising our very successful golf day at Dalmahoy. Sean said: its a great honour to be asked to be a WWSF ambassador and I can’t wait to start my new role promoting the Foundation and helping with our fundraising events. Joining an already strong team of people running and supporting the Foundation, I believe we will go from strength to strength.
