The Secret Millions: Series 1, Episode 4

March 23, 2013

This will be on Channel 4 tomorrow at 8pm:

Jimmy Doherty helps test a radical new way of helping young disabled people and their families. The idea of the project is to use a stay on a farm, to not only give them a break but also tackle issues in the family.

Jimmy’s own farm is open to the public, and he’s seen first-hand the powerful effect it can have on people.

Together with the Papworth Trust, a charity that helps support disabled people and their families, he plans to use Jimmy’s Farm to test a new way of giving families with disabled children a break.

Jimmy volunteers at one of the Papworth Trust Youth Clubs, which has activities for disabled children, enabling parents to have a few hours to themselves.

While he’s there, he looks for families who might benefit from a stay on the farm.

But what no one else knows is that there’s plenty at stake. If Jimmy and the people he meets can prove the trial works, it could help convince The Big Lottery Fund to give £2 million to make the idea a reality.

As the project develops, Jimmy begins to look at disability in a totally different way. But have they done enough to secure the funding?
