I am delighted to become an official supporter of the Buddy Bag Foundation which came about through a chance meeting with its founder, Karen Williams, in connection with breakfast television when she was nominated for an award.

The foundation carries out wonderful work for many of the 48,000 children in the UK who each year require emergency care and accommodation and a sense of security and belonging. It must be terrible for very young people to be faced with coping with loss and grief alone. Yet small gestures can make a huge difference at these difficult times and the backpack containing all the essential requirements such as toiletries, pyjamas, socks and underwear as well as comfort things such as a teddy bear, photo frame or book is a great example.

The Charity is going from strength to strength and long may it continue. I certainly look forward myself to watching it grow.
