Band Track Dogs help to raise £1,000 for School-Home Support
The acoustic band Track Dogs have raised an incredible £1,000 for School-Home Support – who donated proceeds from their single Meet Me in the Middle.
The band came together in 2011 to make their unique brand of acoustic music. HELLO! magazine’s urgent appeal with School-Home Support spoke to Track Dogs as all members have worked as teachers to varying degrees.
Band member Robbie K. Jones, who is the son of educators, said: “This collective experience has given us an appreciation of the importance of education, particularly for children in difficult circumstances. Helping School-Home Support seemed like the ideal way to give something back.
The aim is to raise donations to fund School-Home Support Practitioners on the frontline. Funds raised will be used to help families overcome the barriers they face in accessing education now that the national lockdown has come to an end, ensuring the most vulnerable pupils in the country are able to get the education they deserve.
How can you help?
The problems children have been facing have not disappeared now they are back at school. Families are still struggling to get by, and mental health across the entire country has taken a turn for the worst.
