Rocker Vivian Campbell named ambassador for Northern Ireland Hospice

By Stewart Robson

Rock star Vivian Campbell says he is flattered after being named an ambassador for the Northern Ireland Hospice.

The Belfast-born Def Leppard guitarist (55) joins celebrities such as TV presenter Eamonn Holmes and Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers in the role.

Campbell, who lives in California, was diagnosed with Hodgkin's lymphoma in 2013, and discussed his treatment during a visit to the hospice last year.

He said: "I'm so flattered to have the opportunity to give back, especially to the people of my home country."
