Margaret Harrison CBE, 1938 – 2015
It is with great sadness that we announce that Margaret Harrison, founder and life president of Home-Start, the UK’s largest voluntary family support charity, died at home on Sunday 16th August 2015.
Margaret began the charity in Leicester in 1973 and led it for 25 years. In the 1980s Home-Start was the fastest growing social franchise in the UK, spreading from the East Midlands to all four corners of the UK and into British Forces base in Germany and Cyprus. In 1998, Margaret also founded Home-Start International in response to requests from more than 22 other countries wishing to adopt the Home-Start approach. She was awarded an OBE in 1989 and a CBE in 2001.
What a great success the concert was on the 10th July at Oakengates Theatre.
We can't thank all of the performers who took part enough. Children from St Lawrence primary school, Wrockwardine Wood Junior School, Lilleshall & muxton Cubs, Jitterbugz dance Academy and Burton Borough School all worked hard to make the eveing a truly spectalular event. We would also like to thank Imogen Boydell and Tia Holling for hosting the eveing with such confidence.
In April this year Caia Bryant-Griffiths is embarking on a trek through the Himalayas to raise funds for Home-Start so that we can continue to support families make positive changes to their lives.
