Meet our Ambassadors!
In August 2019, Jennifer discovered BUMBLEance through social media. She immediately got onboard with keeping the BUMBLEance wheels turning by texting Fuel to 50300 and urging her listeners to do the same! Jennifer is excited to help support children with life limiting conditions as she recognises the important role that this free service plays in the lives of many families across 32 counties. “It is such an important thing that BUMBLEance does and I am delighted to lend my support to this worthy cause. They do amazing work helping children and their families all across the island of Ireland and I am delighted to be able to help. These little Bees so deserve to travel like the Kings and Queens they are. I am so proud to support this vital service for children that is greatly appreciated and much needed.”

Aoife Noonan is a multi-award winning pastry chef from Dublin, with a Culinary Arts degree and a Masters in Nutrition in the making.

Her love of baking and teaching combined is so admirable, and we are delighted to have her on our BUMBLEance journey for 2022! Aoife says, ”I am so delighted to be a part of the BUMBLEance family and to help raise awareness for this wonderful and essential children’s service. I am proud to be able to use my skills, experience and love of teaching to create some really fun and exciting recipes and events and to get everyone baking, cooking and eating!”
