Introducing Chrissie Jackson as our new patron
Chrissie Jackson entertains thousands of people across Norfolk every weekday with her mid-morning show on BBC Radio Norfolk and has been a popular personality on the county’s airwaves for decades. And now we’re really delighted to announce her as the new patron of Home-Start Norfolk.
Mum to a grown-up son and daughter and a proud grandmother, Chrissie joins the Home-Start Norfolk team as we launch our ‘5% for the under 5’s’ fundraising campaign this autumn, with the target of generating £50,000 of essential funding.
Speaking at the launch of the fundraising campaign, Chrissie said; “Being a parent to a young child is the best time, but equally one of the hardest. As a new parent, you need people around you; to talk to, listen and share advice. And that’s exactly what Home-Start Norfolk and its brilliant team of volunteers can provide. Something so simple, but can be so life-changing for young children and their parents.
“I’m looking forward to meeting more of the Home-Start Norfolk team and the families they support over the next year. By supporting mums, dads and carers, Home-Start Norfolk can really transform family life, giving young children a better, brighter start during those important early years.”
