Last night’s 6pm ITV Central News (23rd March) was a special programme marking the year anniversary of lockdown and the impact of the pandemic.
The programme featured one of Charity Link’s clients, Shannon, who has been struggling to make ends meet since she lost her job at the start of the pandemic. Shannon is a single mum to her two children and also looks after her teenage brother. Shannon was keen to share her story to raise awareness of how tough it can be for low-income families and she wanted to highlight what a huge difference your support makes during times of need.
The film also included a short interview with Charity Link Director Susan McEniff talking about the impact of the pandemic on vulnerable families.
