Rooftop TV: Children 1st, brightening birthdays, free laptops

The home of good news worth shouting about, The Rooftop, has launched a new weekly broadcast series called Rooftop TV.

Featuring a roundup of the week’s top good news stories, the programme shines a spotlight on the issues that matter and the campaigns that are making a positive difference to people’s lives.

In this week’s episode, The Rooftop’s Tom York and Simon Francis speak to Mary Glasgow, Chief Executive of Children 1st about the UK’s first ever Child’s House for Healing which will soon open its doors in Scotland.

Simon and Tom also talk about a former refugee from the Balkans who set up community interest company SocialBox.Biz to provide free laptops and tablets to vulnerable and digitally excluded people in the UK.

There is also a heart-warming story about a games company that has helped brighten up the birthdays of 200 children in West Sussex who have had to cancel birthday parties because of the current stay at home and social distancing rules.

New Rooftop TV episodes air every Friday lunchtime on YouTube, Facebook and Instagram TV.
