VIDEO: Emmerdale star Chelsea Halfpenny’s call for carers

Emmerdale star Chelsea Halfpenny is backing a fostering recruitment drive.

Chelsea’s Emmerdale character, Amy Wyatt, has benefitted from being taken in by a foster family and Chelsea hopes others will be inspired to do the same.

“If my face by any chance makes people look twice at fostering, it will be worth it,” she said.

Doncaster Council aims to recruit 30 carers this year. A pop-up fostering shop has been set up in the Frenchgate Centre.
