Table Tennis Champion Ross Wilson Jumps on Board as Patron of Tree of Hope

Ross Wilson

Ross Wilson 21 has become the newest member of the Tree of Hope team, by becoming a patron to the Kent based children’s charity.

Tree of Hope offers help and support to families of sick and disabled children in the UK who need specialist medical surgery, treatment and therapy.

A member of the GB Paralympic Table Tennis Performance Squad and two time Paralympic medalist Ross has plenty to celebrate.

Ross was a National U12 and U14 doubles champion before being diagnosed with multiple epiphyseal dysplasia. Determined that this wasn’t going to hold him back, he joined the GB team in 2011 going on to win team bronze in London 2012 at the age of 17.

He then went on to take team bronze at the Europeans in 2015 securing selection for the Paralympic Games in Rio. Battling injury, Ross went on to win team bronze in the men’s 6-8 event in Rio delighting fans worldwide with his performance.

Gill Gibb, CEO of Tree of Hope comments: “Ross is an inspirational role model for the charity. He has shown such focus and determination and not allowed illness to hold him back. I am sure all our families will be able to identify with this and we would like to welcome him on board.”

Ross Wilson comments: “I have been following the work of Tree of Hope for some time and wanted to get involved. I am excited to become a patron and want to put the experiences I have had to good use, by helping other young people who are suffering from illness and disability to achieve their dreams. I was helped along the way and I now want to give that back to other children in whatever way I can”.
