  • BBC Christmas Appeal 2020 – LonelinessWe’ve been working with a group of local charities to develop an Appeal about loneliness – and how we can tackle it together. The Appeal (which runs from 07-11 December) will include stories, information and advice on different ways to ‘stay connected’ at Christmas. Loneliness can be difficult to talk about and sometimes hard to overcome. This Appeal aims to make all of that a little easier. #stayingconnected
