Ryan Green, a member of Ross-on-Wye LEO Club has been made the Lions Young Ambassador for Great Britain and Ireland. Facing stiff competition from 12 other fantastic young people from all parts of Britain and Ireland, Ryan had to tell the judges just what he did and how he helped in the community.
While studying for his `A` levels at John Kyrle High School, Ryan still found time for Sea Cadets, acts as secretary for the Ross LEO Club and has carried out charitable work for McMillan`s Nurses and St. Michael`s Hospice. However his greatest involvement is with Hope Support Services, where Ryan acts the Youth Chairman. Hope Support Services is a Ross-based charity whose aim is to support young people who have a close family member diagnosed with a life threatening illness. No other organisation does this.
A truly remarkable young man, Ryan fully deserves the accolade of being awarded the title of “Lions Young Ambassador for 2011”. As well as bringing home four magnificent trophies (two for Ross Lions as sponsoring Lions Club), Ryan receives a generous bursary from Lions Clubs International towards his main project, Hope Support Srvices.
