Interested in taking part in a TV show for Children in Need Special?

Hello,
My name’s Tenniel, I’m a Casting Researcher. I’m writing to you
from Studio Lambert, the BAFTA-winning TV production company behind
Gogglebox, The Great Interior Design Challenge and Doctor in the
House.
We are currently producing a Children in Need Special of the hit BBC
Two show “Big Life Fix”, an exciting and innovative science series
that sees a skilled team of scientists, engineers and designers create
bespoke technology for individuals and groups in need of help to
transform their lives for the better.
In the first series, our team came up with solutions for a range of
issues affecting individuals and communities, including building a
bicycle for a boy born with no hands or feet, making a new medical
helmet for a little girl who just wants to fit in with her friends,
and adapting a camera for a budding photographer who can no longer use
his hands.
If you’re not familiar with the show, here is a short clip which
should hopefully illustrate the premise and tone of the series:
http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p04jylxm
For our Children in Need Special we are again looking for more
children who feel they could benefit from a tailor-made invention.
Whether it’s a condition or disability that prevents a child from
doing something they love or used to love doing, or a daily problem or
challenge which you think could be helped by our brilliant team of
inventors, we’d love to hear from you.
It would be fantastic if you could share some information about our
search on either your website, social media pages or via email to help
us spread the word about this fantastic opportunity.

If anyone is interested in applying, they can call the casting team on
0203 040 6908 or email us at biglifefix@studiolambert.com. All calls
are treated in the strictest of confidence.
Alternatively, a short contact form can be filled out here to express
interest in the show:

Very best wishes,
Tenniel

Seth learns with Snapwords

Bex Wilkinson walked into the kitchen to see what her son Seth was up to as he was very quiet and was absolutely thrilled when she saw that he had written ‘bingo’ and ‘seth’ on the fridge.  Just amazing.  Seth learns letters with songs and a great learning source used at school is Snapwords.  Details can be found at https://child1st.com/collections/snapwords.

Happy 60th birthday Stephen

 

This month we say a very special Happy Birthday to Stephen who turned 60. He has celebrated many birthdays with ECHO since his early days at the Pembridge Arts project. The cake was made by staff member, Lucy, who gave up her day off to create this chocolate masterpiece so that his friends at Friday Club could share the celebration. Stephen is also a valued member of Clever Betsy who took him out for a pub lunch. ‘I loved my cake’ said Stephen ‘ it was fun to share it with my ECHO friends’
