Katherine Jenkins OBE

Since the release of her debut album in 2004, Katherine Jenkins, the golden voiced mezzo-soprano singer from Neath in Wales, has gone on to win the hearts of audiences around the world. 

Katherine’s late father, Selwyn, was helped by Macmillan nurses before he passed away from lung cancer in 1996 and both Katherine and her sister Laura have worked tirelessly to help raise awareness and funds for people affected by cancer. 

On being appointed an Ambassador for Macmillan in 2009, Katherine said: 'It's a great honour to have been asked to be an Ambassador for Macmillan and I look forward to helping the charity as much as possible.' 

In her time as an Ambassador, Katherine has delighted the audience at the Macmillan Guards Chapel Carol Concert, supported Macmillan's flagship fundraiser, World’s Biggest Coffee Morning, and attended the Macmillan De'Longhi Art Auction. Most notably perhaps, Katherine undertook the challenging Virgin Money London Marathon in 2013 - in memory of Selwyn - raising almost £27,000 and generating significant awareness for Macmillan.
