ITV News broadcaster Mary Nightingale will use her role to raise awareness of the Rainbow Trust Children’s Charity’s work.

She said: “I’ve long admired the support that the Rainbow Trust gives to terminally-ill children and their families and had no hesitation when I was asked to join as patron.

“I have children of my own and can’t imagine how hard it must be when your child is diagnosed with a life-threatening illness.

“I’m happy to do everything I can to raise awareness about the fantastic work that the trust does and I am delighted to have officially joined the team.”

The organisation’s chief executive Heather Wood added: “I am very happy to welcome Mary to Rainbow Trust. Her warm personality and can-do attitude fits with our continued commitment to help as many children and their families as possible through extremely difficult times.”

Nightingale’s first role as patron will be hosting the charity’s annual fundraiser, Trust in Fashion, which is to be held at the Savoy Hotel, London, on March 10.
