    Hello hun, I’ve tweeted you and send an email too, but you asked me to send to this one.

    Basically after watching the show and being the owner of Camp Cupcake in Liverpool I wanted to make contact to see if we could get involved, how we could get involved and any ideas or suggestions you may have. Bullying is something that’s close to my heart being bullied myself whilst at school and then becoming a bully whilst at senior school, after being bullied into! It really is a vicious circle.

    Anyhow, if you could let me know how we could help I would appreciate that.

    Kind regards

    Hi, I have just watched the channel 5 show again regarding bullying and it was a great show.
    As someone who was bullied at school for being different, I can empathise how hard it is dealing with bullying at the time and also later in life as an adult.
    I now perform an anti-bullying show show for primary aged children, using magic to get the message across, with the aim of empowering the children to ask for help.
    If there is any way we can help each other with the main aim of vanishing the bullies, then please get in touch.
    Looking forward to hearing from you
