Our Ambassadors

Suzi Ruffell

Comedian, writer, and actress Suzi Ruffell came across Spread a Smile when a friend’s child was in hospital and saw what a positive difference our entertainers made. Since then, she has supported us by generously donating her winnings from TV appearances on The Tipping Point and The Weakest Link, and she headlined and curated an incredible comedy fundraiser in December 2021, at The Comedy Store, bringing along a host of her incredibly funny friends.

I’m honoured to become an ambassador of Spread a Smile, the work they do is incredible, bringing joy and laughter to children and their families in the hardest of times. I’m very proud to be part of the Spread a Smile family and I look forward to helping raise more money for their wonderful work.’

Richard Jones

Richard Jones is not just one of our wonderful Magicians, but also an internationally recognised Member of the Inner Magic Circle, winner of Britain’s Got Talent and Ambassador of The British Army. He has been spreading laughs to children in hospital since 2019, and we couldn’t be more proud that he is our Ambassador for Spread a Smile. 

Performing in hospitals with Spread a Smile, and seeing how big an impact it makes on individuals, is truly magical. I’ve seen countless times just how excited the young people get when they hear Spread a Smile entertainers are visiting. The most noble art is of course making others smile and the inspiringly brave children I have met during visits always put a big smile onto my face too.’
