EDITOR’S BLOG: Children’s charity will receive this month’s donation


I’m delighted to announce that Clear Sky, Children’s Charity have won my £50 donation for February!

I chose the charity because I’m a father myself who has had to support children through bereavement and mental health problems. I can wholeheartedly relate to Sophia Giblin’s story and aims in more ways than one.

I would also like to take the opportunity to thank Clear Sky for their continued support of our projects; UK Charity Week and the Charity Today Awards.

Here’s a little something back for you.

Who are Clear Sky?

Clear Sky are leaders in providing Play & Creative Arts Therapy in schools. They use a holistic approach working with parents, teachers and other childcare practitioners; whilst keeping the child and play at the heart of everything they do.

At least 3 children in every UK classroom will have a diagnosable mental health difficulty

  • Many more will be struggling with psychological difficulties which impact on their learning such as anxiety and low self-esteem

Clear Sky are experts in child-led therapy

  • They have a dedicated team and unlike most other providers ONLY use fully qualified Play & Creative Arts Therapists
  • Their parent workshops and training are based on the latest research

They offer good value and flexibility

  • School budgets are tighter than ever, but their lean model of working means that they can offer good value services. Many schools use Pupil Premium funding to pay for support for their pupils
