Ireland Ambassador

Children in Crossfire are honoured to have Comic John Linehan, aka May McFettridge as our Ireland Ambassador

John Linehan, better known for his role as May Mc Fettridge at the annual Pantomine in the Grand Opera House, Belfast, was named Children in Crossfire’s Ireland ambassador at an event at Belfast City Hall in February 2022.

John’s support has been vital for us since our very earliest days. He has been a constant friend, always willing to do whatever is asked of him to help us raise funds and grow our support.

Our Founder Richard Moore stated that;

“John brings humour and heart to everything he does with us, just as May McFettridge does on stage. He is key to our Belfast Support Group, whose work and goodwill have enabled Children in Crossfire to make life better for many thousands of vulnerable children over the years"

“John has seen first-hand some of the impact we have made through our international work, having visited both Malawi many years ago and Tanzania more recently. I know John was genuinely touched by what he experienced on those trips, so I was delighted when he accepted our request to become our Ireland Ambassador.”

This wonderful charity is very close to my heart, and it is always a pleasure for me to support them however I can. Richard Moore is a great personal friend, so I was delighted to accept the role of Ireland ambassador when he asked me.
