Charlotte, named The Sunday Times and Sky Sports Sportswoman of the Year in 2014, shared the news with her supporters on social media today. Charlotte said:

"Today I officially become Global Ambassador for the Brooke – an incredible charity that is dedicated to improving the lives of working horses, donkeys and mules in some of the world’s poorest communities. I’m very proud to be associated with a cause that is committed to making a real difference to the lives of animals that are less fortunate than those we have here in the UK. I look forward to sharing more with you soon.”

Petra Ingram, the Brooke’s Chief Executive, added:

“We are absolutely thrilled to welcome Charlotte into the Brooke family as our new Global Ambassador. We were so impressed with Charlotte’s enthusiasm for the Brooke and her willingness to help, despite how busy she is. Hopefully together we can raise awareness of the issues these working animals face every day of their difficult lives. We are so grateful to Charlotte for giving up her time to this very worthy cause.”
