Our Celebrity Ambassadors

Our celebrity ambassadors help to promote Leukaemia Care as a charity to a wider audience.

Andrew Hayden-Smith

Andrew is an actor, television presenter and voice over artist from the North East. He has appeared in TV shows 'Byker Grove' and 'Doctor Who', as well as presenting CBBC, The UK Top 40 and The Hub on ITV’s This Morning. He has also appeared on the West End stage and is a regular announcer on ITV2. Andrew has a personal connection with blood cancer after his father was diagnosed with leukaemia in 2014. Andrew hopes to use his ambassadorship to raise awareness for Leukaemia Care and to spread the word about spotting the symptoms of blood cancer sooner, which are often confused for other illnesses, in the hope that it might save others. Andrew is also a passionate campaigner for the LGBT community and works with The Albert Kennedy Trust, alongside Sir Ian McKellen and Paul O’Grady to raising awareness for young, homeless LGBT people.
