Eoin with Pudsey

Having experienced some really difficult times in my life, I was really thankful to find North Belfast Play Forum who really helped me feel better. I want to raise money that will go on to make a difference to help other young people who have faced challenges.”

Eoin is 14 and from Belfast

As a boy Eoin loved spending time with his dad – they’d watch football matches together and enjoy hanging out. But in 2018 Eoin’s life changed dramatically. Eoin’s dad passed away following an illness and then, around the same time, Eoin and his family lost their home – leaving them homeless. Eoin, his mum and his sisters went to live with their grandma but there wasn’t much space which meant that he had to sleep on the floor. It was a really tough time for him and led to him bottling up his emotions. Eoin was introduced to North Belfast Play Forum, who receive funding from BBC Children in Need to deliver programmes of support and development for children who have been affected by a variety of issues. After attending some sessions at North Belfast Play Forum, Eoin gradually started to feel better and much happier in himself.
