Denise van Outen, Dr Ruth Glynne-Owen and Barrie Knight chat to Kate Thornton on Up Close and Socially Distant

Up Close And Socially Distant is hosted by Kate Thornton and features video catch-ups with people who are all doing whatever they can, in whatever unique and special way they can, to help those around them get through lockdown, from frontline heroes, famous faces, and those launching incredible initiatives to help others. This week Kate speaks to Denise Van Outen about volunteering to sew scrubs for frontline NHS staff, to CEO and Founder of the Blue Sky Autism Project, Dr Ruth Glynne-Owen, about helping children in learn through play in lockdown, and to Barrie Knight about his YouTube show, ‘Big Knight In’, which is raising money so that he can buy and deliver food parcels to those most in need.
