The COVID pandemic has turned all of our worlds upside down but for families already isolated by their difference many found themselves forgotten and abandoned in a system overwhelmed and able to meet their needs. Empathy therefore knew that to furlough the staff and close the doors was simply not an option and has been online, on the phone, the homes of every family that needed them with packs, daily activities, support visit and much more from day one. Now they need your help to survive and thrive. The music industry has been hit equally hard by the pandemic with gigs and festivals cancelled and bands separated by COVID restricts and as an industry also finds itself in dire need. With a vested interest in both the Blu Fest Team have stepped into help with a fabulous live stream on Fri 19th Feb providing both a platform to showcase young, local u and coming talent and to raise some emergency funds for this fab little charity. All of the artists have given their time and talent for free on behalf of this great cause. We know these are hard time but please give what can to ensure that Empathy for special children can continue to change the lives of some very special children and those that care for them both through this pandemic and beyond
