A Sheffield squash champion has been named the newest patron of a city charity which helps young hospital patients.
Nick Matthew, a three-time world champion, has stepped up his support for the Sheffield Children’s Hospital Charity and will now act as an ambassador for the cause.
He joins a team of patrons that includes heptathlete Jessica Ennis-Hill, retired cricketer Michael Vaughan and biker James Toseland.
The former High Storrs School pupil - who became a new dad to baby daughter Charlotte last month - said he was ‘very proud’ of his role, adding: “The hospital is an amazing place and the staff do so much for so many children.”
The charity is in the middle of its £10 million Make It Better campaign to help fund the hospital’s redevelopment.
