Oxfordshire learning disability charity Yellow Submarine, who do a lot of activities in Abingdon, is marking 100 days of lockdown by a 24-hour live-streaming marathon this Monday.
Staff member Jack has kept its members entertained, comforted, challenged and stimulated from day one, and now he’s going the extra mile by vowing to keep awake for 24 hours and keep the entertainment coming.
Throughout lockdown, Jack has hosted quizzes and talent shows, DJ’d discos, given fitness workouts, held cooking and art demos and more.
Yellow Submarine is hoping to raise £1000 over the 24 hours. Jack has promised to shave off his unruly hair and beard live on screen if the target is reached during the streaming.
Jack says, ‘But as well as a fundraiser, this is an opportunity to celebrate the strength, resilience and bravery of all of our members during this challenging time, they have done INCREDIBLY!’
