I’m soooo excited to see the awesome Anne Frank Trust launch their Thirteen in 2013 campaign… and to be involved in supporting and judging it! If YOU are thirteen at any point this year, you can get involved too!

All you have to do is nip across to the Anne Frank Trust website and find out more! Seventy years before social media, a thirteen year old girl changed the way we see the world, forever. Anne Frank’s dairy is one of the most widely read books in the world, and her bravery and honesty still inspire us today. Now you can have YOUR say. If you are thirteen at any point in 2013, we’re inviting you to write to the Prime Minister to tell him what YOU think would make Britain a better place, and what YOU would like to change. 

It’s an amazing opportunity – please join in. The best letters will be answered by the Prime Minister and published in The Times… and who knows, they might just change the world, a little bit, anyway. Take a look at the Anne Frank Trust website and see how you can enter!

All sorts of good stuff is happening this week – the trailer for Coco Caramel has just gone live on CathyCassidyTV, giving us a sneak peek of Bobby playing Coco – she’s FAB, just full of personality and fun, just the way I imagined Coco would be. I think you’ll agree she makes the  cutest little sister to CCTV actresses Toni (Honey), Sophie (Summer & Skye) and Bethany (Cherry)! Do leave a comment on the trailer to be in with a chance of winning this week’s £10 New Look voucher… you might just be lucky!

I’m still unpacking after my fab trip to the Children’s Reading Festival in Sharjah in the United Arab Emirates… where did all that sunshine go? Have a fantastic bank holiday weekend… and please think about sending a letter to David Cameron to tell him what YOU think about life in Britain today. Your views matter – have your say!

Comments on ARE YOU THIRTEEN in 2013?

  1. It is definitely better to have kids’ opinions on things, we are part of the population, after all! 🙂 Can’t wait until Coco Caramel is out, in three days!
