Nick Jenkins | Ambassador


Nick founded the online greeting card business Moonpig.com and later became one of the dragons in BBC’s Dragons’ Den. 

He joined Shivia in 2015 as our very first Patron, sharing his entrepreneurial, business start-up and philanthropic experience with us and providing valuable strategic guidance to the Board of Trustees and our management team. There is no doubt that Nick’s involvement has made Shivia a more focussed, effective and impactful charity. 

Many of our supporters enjoyed hearing Nick speaking at our House of Commons Dinner and Auction (pictured here) as well as meeting him at other Shivia events.  We are delighted that when Nick stepped down as Patron after seven years in the role, he chose to remain as one of our valued Ambassadors for which we are very grateful.

  • Agri-management Services has the capacity to deliver lasting change for our farmers. I have always felt that the farmers feed our nation while they can hardly afford to feed themselves. What an irony. So if my team and I are able to help farmers earn a sustainable income through agriculture, there’s nothing better than this.
