James Ogden

I've been to film with Sheffield Thai Boxing world champion, James Ogden. He's heading to Australia in the hope of becoming a double world champion. James has used the deep heartache of the still birth of his daughter as motivation to succeed. It was an absolute pleasure to film with James and his coach Trix March, who is also his aunty!

Autism Allotment

A couple from South Yorkshire are turning a fly-tipped allotment into an area for children with conditions like autism and epilepsy to enjoy. Paul and Michael Atwal-Brice are part way through converting the disused allotments in Thurnscoe into what they're calling an 'Autism Allotment'. They need to raise forty thousand pounds to be able to finish the project.

There's been a big push to process asylum seeker applications by the Government since it announced late last year that it would be closing many hotels to asylum seekers. It's led to a surge in the number of people given settled status to live here. A charity in Sheffield,  says that has meant new refugees are at risk of homelessness - as they're evicted from hotels after 28 days and need to find an income and a place to live in that time.
