Soccer AM host Lloyd Griffith named as hospice ambassador


A local comedian, TV presenter and singer is to become a new ambassador for St Andrew’s Hospice in Grimsby.

Lloyd Griffith, who hosts Sky Sports’ hugely popular Soccer AM programme will be assuming the role in 2018.

He was born and raised in the town, attending St James’ School and has been a successful chorister, comedian and, most recently a TV presenter.

Lloyd featured on Songs of Praise, before taking up a career in comedy, which has resulted in touring slots with Jack Whitehall and Rob Beckett.

His TV career began with the BBC Three show ‘Taxi to Training’, which featured top Premier League stars, such as Troy Deeney and Dele Alli.

Following that, Lloyd was announced as the new co-host of Soccer AM for the 2017/18 season.

He joins Joanne Clifton, Julie Peasgood and George Kavanagh as an ambassador of St Andrew’s Hospice.

The hospice provides palliative and end-of-life care for anybody of any age in North East Lincolnshire, and cares for children and young people aged 0-25 in the East Riding, Hull and wider Lincolnshire.
