PPBF are lucky to have some wonderful people to help us both within the charity and outside of it to spread the word
Madam Deputy Bailiff, Jessica Roland was appointed Deputy Bailiff in May 2020. Prior to her move to the judiciary, she was a partner and latterly managing partner at a law firm in Guernsey.
She was delighted to be asked to be patron of PPBF.
Susie is Guernsey born with two fabulous grown up children who are her world and have been her driving force since the day they were born. Being a mother was, and still is, the biggest responsibility she feels she has ever had and the most meaningful one. When she saw what Jo & Andy were doing to help others after their experience with premature babies, she imagined if that had been hers. This is how she got involved in helping the PPBF. She believes in giving back and being the best we can be during our short time on this wonderful planet.
She lives her life trying to do that, as well as working full time as a magazine editor and publisher. She first got involved with helping charities years ago with The Anthony Nolan Leukaemia Bone Marrow Trust and fundraising for them with Easter egg hunts. She realised events were a great way to raise awareness and funds for charities and hasn't stopped since! Susie is honoured to be able to say that alongside Jayne St Pier and Simon Torode they set up and opened The Hub youth centre in Guernsey. She has been involved in many other charities over the years and helps where she can.
Susie likes to paint in oils and does the odd private commission. In her spare time she swims in the sea every day (yes it's cold!) and spends as much time as possible with nature by getting out on the gorgeous Guernsey cliffs for long walks. She loves keeping fit as she can and her new thing is boxing fitness.
She is honoured to be an ambassador for the PPBF, which is so humble about what they do, and alongside the other fabulous ambassadors and fundraisers and friends she hopes to raise more money to keep helping families stay together and worry less during a very difficult time.

Jason is thrilled to be involved with the charity as an ambassador. His elder daughter Charlotte was born in Southampton with severe complications the year before the charity was formed so knows full well how so much this charity was and is needed for Guernsey families.
Nick is a financial services professional and father of two. He has experienced the true value that PPBF provides with both children having to spend extended periods of time in hospital in both Guernsey and Southampton.

Ali has been involved with the Priaulx Premature Baby Foundation since 2009, when she worked alongside Jo on the day-to-day running of the charity. No two days were ever the same as this role incorporated a wide range of areas from fundraising and corporate sponsorships to liaising with hospital and medical staff while supporting families. Ali helped establish the original flat in Southampton, now known as Isaac’s Pad, along with the subsequent purchase of a much needed second property – Aggie’s Burrow. Ali's calm, caring and organised approach meant that she was well-suited to her role as property liaison, helping families with their accommodation needs.
Since starting a part time job in 2018, helping to run the office of a private company, Ali has taken a step back from the above role. But, she is still very much involved and continues to avidly support the PPBF's work as an Ambassador. Outside of work and the PPBF, Ali volunteers with the Guernsey Athletics Club as a time keeper and track judge - roles which she also took on during the Island Games in 2023.

Hubert and his wife Emma have been keen supporters of the PPBF since 2014 following the diagnosis of their eldest daughter, Aggie, with neuroblastoma. The PPBF were incredibly supportive of Hubert’s family during this difficult time providing accommodation at their Southampton flat during Aggie’s many extended stays at Southampton General Hospital. Hubert’s family have been actively involved in fundraising since the original diagnosis and one of the charities’ flats in Southampton was renamed in Aggie’s honour in 2017. Hubert became an Ambassador of the PPBF in 2020.
In addition to his involvement with the PPBF, Hubert has worked in financial services for almost 20 years as an accountant and a non-executive director.

Tim became involved with the PPBF after the birth of his daughter Maicie in June 2011. Maicie needed the special baby care unit for a short time, this proved invaluable as Maicie and Nikki were in differing parts of the hospital. This allowed me to video and take pictures to show Nikki through this difficult time.
Tim’s background is in construction, currently working as a Senior Contracts Manager at Ravenscroft Construction. Ravenscroft have supported Tim and the PPBF to raise funds and awareness for the foundation, they donated a sum of money from a Christmas Event in 2019 and have sponsored Tim for his swimming events, including a memorable Jersey to France which took 11 hours. Tim helps out at any fund raising events during the year and is proud to be asked to be an Ambassador for the PPBF.
Nikki wanted to become involved with the PPBF following the birth of her daughter in 2011. Maicie needed some time in the special care baby unit and whilst they could not be together the care given to Maicie and the communication though a notebook and photo’s to let Nikki know how Maicie was being cared for was invaluable.
Nikki’s background is Property Management, Swoffers supported her to help with events and fundraising through Corporate Social Responsibility from there Nikki felt part of the PPBF family and is always keen to help support and promote the amazing work the charity assists with. Not only from raising funds to supply equipment for babies, supporting families and seeing how the properties in Southampton are so important to help provide a home away from home.
Alexis Morgan is the Technical Lead (Exchange of Information on Request) at the States of Guernsey.
Her family were beneficiaries of the Foundation’s work after her daughter was born 16 weeks early in 2019 and they used Aggie’s Burrow for 100 days. This helped her be by her daughter’s side in hospital as much as possible and be a home-from-home for her family during a very abnormal time.
Alexis is looking forward to continuing to raise awareness of the issues facing premature babies and their families, who spend time on the neonatal unit. She is especially looking forward to helping continue the Foundation’s work to ensure the wonderful sanctuaries, PPBF compassionate housing, remain available for the families that will follow.
