The One Show Boxes
The Blue Team
Owain was joined by Sally and Oliver, who were representing some of the amazing projects Comic Relief supports.
Sally is a mum of 4 who, during and after her 4th pregnancy, struggled with severe stress, anxiety and low self-esteem. Sally was supported by Nurture the Borders, a Women’s peri-natal mental health charity who provide peer support for women during pregnancy and the first two years with baby. Sally now works for Nurture the Borders as a specialist perinatal support officer, helping other women going through similar experiences.
Oliver was born deaf, but that certainly hasn’t held him back. From a young age, Oliver and his family received support from The Elizabeth Foundation. They worked with his parents to show them how to engage with their son in a way that would help him, and also supported Oliver so that he was in the best possible place to start school. Oliver says, “The Elizabeth Foundation gave me the foundation on which I’ve built my life.
The Yellow Team
Angellica on The Yellow team was joined by Sean and Cherrelle, who represented some of the incredible projects Comic Relief helps to support.
Sean was taking on this challenge for his son. Sean’s world was turned upside down when he and his wife found out their unborn baby had Spina Bifida. The couple were left reeling from the news, but found Spina Bifida Hydrocephalus Scotland who welcomed them with open arms. Sean’s son, Andrew, is now a confident and happy 5 year old, full of life and fun and has a younger brother Fraser.
Cherrelle came from a troubled family background and boxing turned her life around. Having gone on to have a career in both amateur and professional boxing, now she’s helping others to do the same as a mentor to young people at Fight 4 Change. “I just had one person who said I will help you, and I think that’s what our charity stands for... we don’t turn anyone down.”
