Little Bleeders board of Trustees are pleased to announce the recent addition of a new member to our board. Meet Harry Stephens, a Little Bleeders Youth Ambassador and our newest member of our board of trustees.
Harry lives in Buckinghamshire but originally hails from Surrey. He works in the digital marketing field and spends his spare time playing sports, dabbling in technology and enjoying time with his family. Harry has a family history of haemophilia and he himself lives with severe haemophilia A as do his brother and nephew.
Harry’s interest in Little Bleeders began when he came across our social media channels, he was drawn to our message of encouraging young people with haemophilia to be more active and to our strong link with sport and fitness. After finding out about the work that we do to help young people with haemophilia he felt compelled to get involved and contacted our director Wil Woan to find out more about becoming an ambassador.
His involvement in a number of Little Bleeders events and his recent participation in our charity ball have shown Harry’s dedication to the organisation and his passion for spreading the message to get young people to ‘move more, be more’.
“Move more be more is essential,” said Harry. “Being physically fit and keeping active is important to anyone, however it is vital for those with haemophilia due to the physical and psychological benefits.”
Wil and the rest of the Trustees are happy that Harry has agreed to join the board, “Harry will be a wonderful addition to our team here at Little Bleeders and we believe he will bring a fresh perspective that will be able to help drive us to new heights as an organisation.”
“I’m looking forward to getting stuck in and help to make a difference wherever I can – especially being able to help improve the lives of young people with haemophilia.” said Harry.
