Musician James McVey – lead guitarist and singer with hit band The Vamps – has become a Patron of Julia’s House.
James has been a long-time supporter of the Dorset and Wiltshire children’s hospice charity. Last year he visited the Corfe Mullen hospice for a private tour and recently he arranged for a group of Julia’s House siblings to be VIP guests at a Vamps concert.
The 24-year-old, who grew up in Wimborne and attended nearby Corfe Hills School, said: “We used to drive past Julia’s House almost every day on the way to school and I had heard all about their amazing work.
“When I visited, I had a chance to see for myself just how inspiring the children, parents and staff are. I’m delighted and privileged to become a Patron of Julia’s House and am very proud to be supporting my local children’s hospice in this way. I look forward to helping raise awareness and funds for their vital work.”
James joins other Julia’s House Patrons including Martin Clunes, Guy and Jacqui Ritchie, Eddie Howe, Jasper Conran, Rupert Everett and, most recently, Nigel Havers.
