"It’s nearly the end of the lockdown"

by Michael Ford last modified 19 Mar, 2021 07:13 PM

For many children and young people, the easing of lockdown cannot come soon enough. Poverty, lack of social contact, foodbanks, loss of employment and other things have all taken their toll, and The Children's Society continues to find new ways to help our parishes and schools offer support in these times.

The Children's Society's Gill Ford says:

"Lockdown has had a significant impact on children and young people. Think of the news reports on poverty, food banks, loss of employment, lack of social contact and its implications on the mental health of young people and it’s no surprise that there’s been a huge increase in the need of support for vulnerable children and young people.

"The Children’s Society has, against the odds, adapted to new ways of providing support and has continued to help improve the lives of children. Donations are all the more necessary due to the impact of the pandemic. You can help and, in the process, have some enjoyment.

"This quiz has been devised for you for fun and interest by volunteers from The Children’s Society Shaftesbury Fundraising Committee to raise funds.

"Please take part and why not share it with your family, challenge your neighbour or send it on to your friends and family across the world?

"There is no entry fee and you are simply invited to make a donation to The Children’s Society when you take part."
