Lee Ridley revealed as charity ambassador for Scope

The disability equality charity Scope is delighted to announce that Lee Ridley, also known as Lost Voice Guy, is now an ambassador for the charity.

Lee’s profile has rocketed in the past year. He was the first comedian in the history of the show to win ‘Britain’s Got Talent’ and has been invited to appear on ‘America’s Got Talent: The Champions’ which will be televised on NBC in January 2019. Lee’s 2019 Lost Voice Guy tour will also bring him to our very own Middleton Hall on 16 February.

Lee Ridley said “It’s an absolute honour to be an ambassador for such a great charity. It has helped myself and so many other disabled people over the years. So I hope to be able to give something back to the charity in my role as ambassador. It’s a nice way to end a great year.“

Tracy Griffin, Director of Marketing, Fundraising and Communications, at Scope, said “Lee is a brilliant comedian, who won the hearts of the British public when he triumphed in this year’s Britain’s Got Talent. His victory is a great example of why it’s so vital to ensure disabled people have the same opportunities as everyone else to follow their dreams. Both Lee and Scope want disabled people to have an equal chance in all areas of life. That’s about finding work, thriving there, being able to use our public transport network unhindered, and being financially secure. It’s also vital that we confront poor attitudes to disability whereever we find them. Lee has a unique gift to use humour to challenge negative attitudes, break down barriers and bring everyone together.”
