Local charity Home-Start launches a campaign next month that acknowledges just how challenging the pandemic has been for so many families and children. Supported by local Hollywood celebrity Wade Eastwood, they are encouraging everyone to pick up their smartphone, record a cheer and post it on their social media or WhatsApp, nominating at least 3 friends to do the same. At the same time, they’re asking people to donate via the campaign donation link (going live across their website and social media channels at midday on 8th June).
Local celebrity Hollywood Stunt Director Wade Eastwood kindly volunteered to direct and film the campaign video in-between working on the next two Mission Impossible films! The video highlights the struggles many families and children are facing during this unprecedented time, and the ways in which Home-Start provides both practical and emotional support so that no child is left behind.
“I was lucky to have strong parents who didn’t struggle and could extend their energy and guidance to me. Now as an adult and a parent, I see those families that have small struggles and can’t always communicate positivity as they deal with life’s everyday issues, especially during the current pandemic. I want to give my energy and focus to those families so that they feed off the positivity and advice, transferring it to their children. It’s about giving everyone a fair chance and sometimes we all need a little help! That’s why I have partnered with Home Start….” Wade Eastwood
Home Start has supported 330 children and their families over the last year with mental health and wellbeing, loneliness, education and financial hardship. The campaign recognizes both the struggles and achievements of children during this unparalleled time.
