Our Celebrity Ambassadors have been supporting us through the pandemic.
Harry and Izzy drum up support
Our new ambassadors McFly’s Harry Judd and author, Izzy Judd have thrown themselves into fundraising. Harry ran an online draw and 3 quizzes and selected 10 lucky people at random to each have an online drum lesson or chat on a video call and also asked his bandmates to help. Izzy highlighted our work by creating an online video of a mindfulness memory book to help families.
So far this wonderful couple has raised £7,177 which was match-funded as part of our special appeal.
David’s virtual storytime
David spends time with Archie prior to lockdown
David Walliams regularly visits the charity but, along with friends and family of the children, the coronavirus crisis put visits on hold. So on April 27 David dropped in via video link to read Windy Mindy from his book The World’s Worst Children. He brought some much-needed cheer to brighten their spirits and gave them the opportunity to ask him about life during lockdown.
David’s supporting our special appeal too. Join him and donate.
Nicholas’ special broadcast
You may know Nicholas Owen as a journalist and broadcaster. But at The Children’s Trust, Nicholas is one of the team, giving his time as a volunteer driver. Though he had to self-isolate during the crisis, Nicholas sent a personal message of encouragement in a video for staff. What a team player!
Elaine and children sing a rainbow
Elaine Paige has been a wonderful ambassador for almost 40 years. As a regular visitor, Elaine knows about the uplifting power of music to our children. So she had a fantastic idea! Elaine has recorded a special cover of ‘Sing a Rainbow’, with all proceeds going to help our charity. She said: “I have recorded the song with the children on video call and mobile phones, which has been great fun.” Look out for the single’s release this summer.
