We are excited and extremely proud to announce that long-term CHICKS supporter, comedian and actor Adrian Edmondson is to front an appeal for CHICKS on BBC Radio 4 this July.
The BBC Radio 4 Charity Appeal is a weekly programme highlighting the work of charities across the UK.
CHICKS nationwide appeal invites Radio 4 listeners to consider their time in lockdown this year, and imagine what it must be like for children referred for a CHICKS break who, lockdown or not, never have time to 'lark about or have fun with chums'.
The appeal then invites listeners to make a donation to CHICKS that will give children affected by the coronavirus pandemic the certainty that days full of fun, laughter and sunshine do lie ahead.
CHICKS appeal will air on BBC Radio 4 on Sunday 19 July at 07.54 and 21.25 and and the following Thursday 23 July at 15.27 and include instructions on how to donate.
Adrian Edmondson, well known for his roles in hit comedies Bottom and The Young Ones worked on the script for the appeal with the CHICKS Team having been an ambassador for the charity's work for a number of years. He says: "CHICKS is a brilliant charity."
