Ambassadors

We're proud to work with so many talented, passionate and high-profile supporters, who volunteer their time and energy to help stop MS. 

Our MS Society Ambassadors are just a small representation of our wonderful volunteers. They raise vital funds, galvanise public support for our campaigns and use their influence to spread the word about MS in the media, helping us reach a wider audience.

Who are our Ambassadors?

Felix and Hugo White

Felix and Hugo are brothers and guitarists in chart-topping band The Maccabees. Their mother lived with MS throughout their childhood, and Felix and Hugo have shared their experience in interviews to raise awareness of how MS affected their family. The band have raised funds at shows across the UK and taken time to meet young people living with MS backstage.
