Kissing It Better's item on The One Show raises a volunteer army

Following our item on The One Show, we have been inundated with requests from talented volunteers across the UK, all keen to make a difference to their local hospital. Singers, student beauticians, pet therapy charities, magicians and dancers have all rallied to the cry for people to come into hospitals and care homes to lift the spirits of patients, residents and their relatives.

Working round the clock since last Wednesday's programme on BBC1, we have now contacted the hundreds of groups who have emailed us. We are sorting out the best way of ensuring both they, and the people they are wanting to help, get the best possible experience.

We are so grateful.
