In this episode, I welcome Emma Cantrell onto the podcast – a return guest (you can listen to our conversation about talking to kids about privilege here) Emma is founder and CEO of the charity First Days and a mum of two.
She recently set up – in response to the Coronavirus pandemic – an emergency food hub, working with her local authority, supermarkets and a team of volunteers to feed over 1000 vulnerable people in her local area.
We discuss what it’s like to be heading out to work – and working long days – when most people are staying at home. She talks about the risk she is at vs the incredible good she is doing. We also chat about parenting through the pandemic, what she is missing and what’s getting her through it all.
