Emma Rigby has become an Ambassador CAFOD. The actor, who rose to fame as Hannah Ashworth in the soap opera Hollyoaks, grew up in St Helens and attended De La Salle High School there.
Emma said, “My Catholic faith is a huge, important part of my life, so it is brilliant to be able to collaborate with a charity that has the same values.”
Emma met Ged Edwards when she was Guest of Honour at De La Salle at their Annual Prize Giving ceremony in November. When Laura Purves and Zoe Corden from the CAFOD’s Emergency Response Team were speakers at the CAFOD Carol Service at St Teresa’s Upholland on their work in Ethiopia in December, she took time out of her busy schedule to meet with us and confirmed her interest in supporting CAFOD when she moved to London in January. We hope to see her supporting CAFOD Liverpool at some point! Thanks again, Emma!
