Max Clifford at his desk in 2005
Disgraced publicist Max Clifford removed as celebrity ambassador of three Surrey charities
On Monday, Hersham resident Max Clifford was found guilty of eight indecent assault charges.
Following his conviction, he was immediately removed as as patron of two Surrey charities, Woking & Sam Beare Hospice and Shooting Star CHASE children's hospices in Guildford and Hampton.
Woking & Sam Beare Hospice chief executive Nigel Harding commented: "The charity of Woking & Sam Beare Hospices has noted the decision of the court today and will be informing Mr Clifford that we no longer wish him to act as a patron for the charity."
Yesterday, Lingfield charity Young Epilepsy became the third charity to disassociate itself from Clifford, announcing that he had been removed from his position as their vice president.
"Young Epilepsy has a number of vice presidents with an interest in epilepsy who donate their time to the charity to raise awareness of the condition" said Carol Long, Chief Executive at Young Epilepsy
“Max Clifford was appointed Vice President in 2011 and has conducted occasional interviews with the media about his own experiences of living with epilepsy.
“Young Epilepsy suspended Mr Clifford’s role as a vice president when he was charged and is now terminating his position following the outcome of his recent trial.”
