New advertising campaign for Oxfam looking for young budding actors

Ever wondered what it would be like to see your child’s name up in lights?

Is your little one developing a big personality? If so, Oxfam needs you.

The charity is currently searching the length and breadth of the country for budding young stars, between the ages of five and eight years, to be the face of Dressed by the Kids Day, an exciting new fundraising event from Oxfam.

Dressed By The Kids Day, which launches in March and takes place on April 29, aims to unite families in a day of fun, by letting the kids choose their parents’ outfits for one day only.

This major new fundraising event will expected to attract national attention, with the faces of our campaign appearing on TV, radio and in print media.

The charity is looking for confident chatterboxes, who have big opinions and love acting up in front of the camera.

The finer details of the event are under wraps until the grand unveiling in March, but in the meantime parents are encouraged to submit auditions for their child to become the face of this campaign.

To enter, simply send a short video (maximum 90 seconds) of your child describing their favourite fancy dress outfit. Perhaps you have a mini Spiderman on your hands, or another Elsa? No matter how wacky the wardrobe, we want to hear from you.

Send your entry video, along with a portrait image and contact details to entries@oxfam.org.uk

Entries are now open and close on Monday, February 22. Finalists and winners will to be notified by Friday, February 26.

Taylor Wimpey have confirmed directly with local Councillor Nathan Wilson that the organisation retains its commitment to building a park and ride at Shieldmuir Train Station. In response to recent enquiries made by Councillor Wilson, Taylor Wimpey have advised that engagement is taking place with Network Rail over the latter’s approval procedures and that once this process is complete, work will be able to begin on site. The developer has informed the Motherwell Councillor that during the period of investigation undertaken since the commencement of building work was delayed in January 2018, an unrecorded service chamber has been discovered on site. The project cannot move forward until further clarification is provided on the nature of the service chamber and Taylor Wimpey are in the process of commissioning a contractor to assess the situation. The developer’s initial judgement is that this is likely a redundant service. A senior representative of the organisation has also informed Councillor Wilson that a member of the Taylor Wimpey production team will be sent out to inspect the vacant land following a request he made at the beginning of 2019 for maintenance work to be carried out on site should construction of the park and ride remain some time away. Councillor Nathan Wilson said: “Taylor Wimpey have communicated to me directly that the park and ride facility is a project that the organisation remains committed to delivering. “However, it goes without saying that the lengthy delay is still very disappointing and frustrating. “An unrecorded service chamber has been identified on site and progress is unable to be made until this has been investigated. “Taylor Wimpey have relayed to me that an on-site inspection of the vacant land will take place and I hold to the view that maintenance work should be carried out in the short term to improve it’s current condition. “I will continue to engage with the relevant stakeholders and re-inforce to them the importance of the park and ride project locally.
