Because Children Can’t Wait

Last year, Home-Start helped more than 58,000 children.*

Founded in Leicester in 1973, Home-Start has since become a global movement spanning 22 countries and five continents.

Committed to shaping family support to the individual needs of the family, Home-Start’s approach is to help families in need with no judgement, just compassion, confidential help and expert support.

In 2019, Home-Start UK provided 233,000 hours of volunteer support to 27,000+ families.*

So, when word reached Glasdon that Home-Start Blackpool, Fylde and Wyre were launching their ‘Be a Home-Start Hero’ campaign, the DJ Sidebottom / Glasdon Charitable Programme were first in line to offer their support.

With Home-Start’s target to receive £1,500 donations to support a family for a year, the DJ Sidebottom / Glasdon Charitable Programme went the extra mile to donate £4,500 to support three families for a year!

Dona Kirkham, Corporate & Community Fundraising Manager of Home-Start Blackpool, Fylde and Wyre was very happy with the donation:

“I was so excited to receive the very generous donation yesterday on behalf of the charity. A huge and heartfelt thank you - Because childhood can't wait.”
