I'm honoured to be an ambassador of KidsOut, the fun and happiness charity for children. I'm working closely with the charity to develop some meaningful and valuable products to support families who flee domestic abuse to seek sanctuary in refuge.
Each year over 20,000 children leave home with only the clothes on their back and having suffered dreadful abuse, to arrive at a refuge with nothing. KidsOut provide each child with a toy box on arrival at the refuge, and another at Christmas. The charity also provides fun days out to disadvantaged children each year.
In my experience in schools I have worked with and supported families in refuge. This charity and the incredibly important work that they do is very close to my heart.
