Local businessman Matt Jackson is the latest addition to the membership of the Worcestershire Ambassadors after waiting nearly 20 months to officially join.
Due to Covid, Matt, from Jackson Family Funeral Directors, belatedly joined the group which is dedicated to promoting the county, supporting good causes and encouraging friendships across Worcestershire.
The Worcestershire Ambassadors’ core aims and objectives are to help make Worcestershire a “great place to live, work, invest, visit and do business”.
Matt said: ‘It’s an honour to join the board and members of the Worcestershire Ambassadors and I look forward to supporting them with fundraising and community initiatives across the county.’
Vince Hopkins, chairman of the Worcestershire Ambassadors, said: “Absolutely delighted to formally welcome Matt into Worcestershire Ambassadors. He runs a leading county business in a very difficult but vital sector with compassion and empathy particularly when considering what the last two years has thrown at us all.
“The company is also a great supporter of local charities and good causes throughout the county which aligns closely to the aims and objectives of Worcestershire Ambassadors.”
