Mark Radcliffe, Radio DJ

Mark Radcliffe 1TV presenter, radio broadcaster, musician and writer Mark Radcliffe first became involved with The Joshua Tree after attending a local fundraising event and seeing first-hand the difference The Joshua tree was making o families within his local community.

"Apart from the obvious necessity for what The Joshua Tree’s focus is as a charity, I was struck by the friendliness and passion of the team inspired, of course, by Founder and Mum to Josh, Lynda.

Also, it is a local rather than a national charity, it felt like by getting involved you could make a real difference. I’m proud to be associated with everything The Joshua Tree stands for."
