02 Jan Lockdown life to feature in Children in Need
The impact of the pandemic will be highlighted in this year’s socially-distanced 40th anniversary Children in Need, to be broadcast on Friday evening. TV presenter Emma Willis, will narrate Life in Lockdown – a film showing youngsters living through difficult circumstances during the coronavirus pandemic.
The feature follows research commissioned by the charity, which found that 94% of children and young people have had cause to feel worried, sad or anxious in the last six months.
“The current pandemic has affected all of our lives, but some families have additional and complex needs and challenges outside of Covid-19,” said Willis.
