Christine and her two daughters were interviewed by Channel 5 News

Christine and James' family have been kept apart by shielding, in order to keep him safe. In this interview with Channel 5 News, we hear for the first time from James' sisters about how isolation and shielding have affected them. Watch the interview here.

Skiggle will be featured by the Disability Sports Channel

Keep an eye out for our up & coming feature with the Disability Sports Channel!

Introducing James

We'd like to introduce you to James, the inspiration behind Skiggle!

We’ve obviously talked about him before and shared our family stories but we’ve always tried to protect him by never posting any photographs.

Well, now that our wonderful young man has turned 17 he wants everyone to get to know him – he just loves being centre of attention! As my husband said, “If he was able to, he’d no doubt be drinking with his mates and would probably be all over social media 😂"

You can find out more about him here

James would love for you to send him a "HELLO" as while he might not be able to read the messages for himself, he certainly loves us reading to him 👋 

Songs For Shielding

If like Christine and James you’ve been shielding since March 2020, our current fundraising campaign can help put a smile back on your face and on the faces of your loved ones.

Its so simple yet so special.

We’ve partnered with two fantastic professional singers, Aidan & Juliet, to perform personalised ‘songs for shielding’ in return for a small donation to the charity. As a registered charity, we rely solely on generous donations and fundraising efforts to continue to provide vital services, help and support within the disability world.

Choose anything from classical tunes to Disney favourites or current chart hits to giftto your nearest and dearest or just brighten up your own day with your favourite song.

Here’s Juliet singing one of James’s much-loved tunes:
