Thank you so much to everyone who supported our Poverty Action bus event on Friday 12th August, including First Leicester (with Freddie the frog!) and volunteers on the day – Melissa, Mandy and from Edwards Hands & Lewis Sian and Rebecca (AKA Elsa from Frozen). Also thanks to Team 9 from NCS who also gave amazing support on the day and helped give out hundreds of balloons to help raise awareness.
It was great to have so many children helping to create our line of happy boys and girls during the event. This fun activity also helped us to increase awareness that 1 in 5 children in Leicester is living in poverty. Charity Link is working to help ensure that all local children can lead happy and healthy lives, starting by ensuring that have access to essential items such as a bed to sleep on.
