Roy Noble OBE

Roy Noble OBE has been an ambassador for Royal Voluntary Service since our 75th Anniversary in 2013.

A Welsh-born BBC radio broadcaster and former headteacher, Roy is best known for his BBC Radio slot, 'The Roy Noble Show', and for his published works. 

Being a popular presenter, Roy is well placed to help promote issues and advice on the health, support and care of older people across Wales and beyond, as well as keeping the public informed of the services Royal Voluntary Service can offer and how we can help.

Royal Voluntary Service has featured on Roy's BBC Radio Wales Show, when Sally Rivers, Royal Voluntary Service Head of Service for Wales, had a chat with Roy about the charity and in particular about our befriending services. The Royal Voluntary Service befriending scheme later featured on BBC documentary Connie’s People.

Roy is passionate about helping in all kinds of charitable causes, and was delighted to have been included in our 75th Anniversary celebrations, as well as being present to recognise and celebrate exceptional older volunteers, and acting as a judge in our 2012 Diamond Champions event at St James' Palace, London.

"I am really pleased to lend my support to such a fantastic charity in this important year for them. I think that the work that Royal Voluntary Service does in helping older people lead the kind of lives that they want to is really important and will become even more so as the nation ages."
