Philippa Joins Global Children's Charity
Child development charity Compassion UK have announced Philippa Hanna as the charity’s first Artist in Residence.
Philippa has been a Compassion UK ambassador for over ten years. During this time she has used her voice and platform to highlight the charity’s life-changing work with the world’s poorest children.
The new role, which begins this month, will see Philippa present about Compassion’s work at local and national events, telling her own story of how sponsoring five Compassion children has had a profound impact on her life. She will also build new partnerships for the charity, lead worship at staff meetings and events throughout the year, and highlight Compassion’s work through regular digital and media engagement.
Philippa has been one of Compassion UK’s most committed ambassadors, securing sponsors for over 1000 children, who are each being given the chance to have a different future.
Philippa explains her passion and drive for sponsorship: “I first started sponsoring a child with Compassion over 12 years ago. Carlos is nearly 18 years old now and it has been amazing to see him blossom into a confident young man. I’m so compelled by the incredible work that Compassion does, that every few years I end up sponsoring another child! It’s a privilege to be officially joining the Compassion team, and I hope I can do even more to share about the joys of sponsorship with a wider audience.”
