Lifelites is excited to announce their latest and youngest Patron, Britain’s Got Talent 2016 finalist and golden buzzer winner, 14 year old Jasmine Elcock.
Talented young singer Jasmine Elcock from Dagenham, Essex was a favourite amongst this year’s Britain’s Got Talent viewers and especially with presenters Ant and Dec who chose Jasmine as their Golden Buzzer winner. She wowed the judges with her beautiful performances and her charm and likeability shone through, impressing even BGT boss Simon Cowell.
Jasmine visited Lifelites with her Father Julian Elcock at their offices to learn more about their work with children’s hospices. Julian Elcock has had some involvement with Lifelites some years ago representing the charity in the Lord Mayor’s Parade.
As a new patron, Jasmine will help to raise awareness of Lifelites’ work in children’s hospices. She will support the charity in a variety of ways including, visiting children’s hospices and backing their fundraising campaigns. Lifelites is extremely grateful for her support and is delighted to welcome young Jasmine as their newest advocate.
Jasmine said: “My life has been transformed through music making and it is a great joy to be able to express myself through singing; I’m delighted to see the magical technology that Lifelites provides can offer similar transformational experiences for terminally ill and disabled children in hospices. I am proud and privileged to help raise awareness of the work of Lifelites and am looking forward to being a Patron of the charity.”
Simone Enefer-Doy, Chief Executive of Lifelites, said: “We are so excited that this lovely young woman has agreed to lend Lifelites her support. Jasmine will be a great advocate for Lifelites. She is likeable and has won the nation’s hearts through Britain’s Got Talent so she’ll be good at attracting attention to our great cause. We’re really looking forward to working with Jasmine in the near future and welcoming her on board #TeamLifelites.”
Jasmine Elcock joins a star studded line-up of Lifelites Patrons which includes Dame Esther Rantzen, Rick Wakeman, Peter Bowles, Joe Pasquale, Anita Dobson and Lord Cadogan (among others).
