Chief executive for Martin House Hospice, Martin Warhurst, recently hit our TV screens appearing to be somebody else! Film crews and football fans seemed to believe Martin was in fact Jan Siewert, who at the time was heavily linked with becoming Huddersfield Town manager, and has since taken on this role. Martin House Hospice provides family-led care for babies, children and young people. They support those with life-limiting conditions and their families across West, North and East Yorkshire. As partners of Vantage Technologies, it is so pleasing to see Martin and the hospice make such widespread news! It is always great to see one of our clients thrive and show people how much of a difference their donations can make.
Martin was shocked when he noticed Sky Sports were beaming his face worldwide as the possible new Huddersfield manager, having just come along to enjoy the game as a football fan! With all the buzz around the possibility of Jan becoming the new manager, Huddersfield fans are familiar with what he looks like, and, well, they thought Martin was him too! A passer-by stopped to ask ‘Are you Jan, the new manager?’ to which Martin, surprised to hear this, responded with ‘No, no, that’s not me. I’m Martin from Wakefield’. This happened more than once, with many people convinced it was him due to their similar looks.
