News from Action for Children – April 2021
Thank you for your continued support throughout the pandemic. You’ve helped us support more than 20,000 children through our Emergency Response Fund and other gifts.
With lockdown restrictions being gradually lifted, we’re feeling positive that we’re getting closer to the time when we’d safely resume face-to-face events. In the meantime, I’d like to tell you about two events coming up soon.
Virtual Fostering Information event
Ever thought about fostering? Know someone who might be thinking about fostering? Then, come along to our live Facebook event on 20th May at 7pm to hear from one of our foster carers and our social worker.
There were 78,150 children in local authority care in 2019, and many more foster carers are needed to give them a safe and loving home; that might just be you. We can answer any questions you have.
The online event will be live on our Action for Children Fostering – England Facebook page on the Click here to sign up: https://fb.me/e/bA48w2IME
Boycott Your Bed for Vulnerable Children
On Friday 9 July, join forces with family, friends or colleagues to raise money by spending the night in the most unusual place you can think of.
Will you camp out under the stars or under the stairs? Bunk down in the bathroom or the back garden? Where will you sleep to challenge yourself? Before you settle in for the night, join us for an evening of virtual entertainment packed with famous faces, bringing people together across the UK.
Boycott your Bed and you’ll bring hope to vulnerable UK children hit hardest by the pandemic. Because – while happier times are ahead for most of us – this crisis has made things even worse for children and families already in desperate need.
Wherever you sleep, the money you raise can make children’s dreams of a safe and happy childhood come true.
