Caroline Flack’s sister praises the Be Kind movement

An event honouring the late TV presenter took place last weekend.

Caroline Flack’s twin sister Jody has praised the Be Kind movement, and has said that she feels it has “changed the world”.

Caroline passed away in February 2020. She was 40-years-old.

Over the weekend, friends, family and fans of the late TV presenter honoured her memory at Flackstock, a music and comedy festival.

As The Mirror reports, Jody said that the Be Kind movement, in her eyes, has changed the world.

She added that Caroline would have been “amazed by everyone who has helped and supported us”.

Caroline’s friend Dawn O’Porter also addressed the crowds of Flackstock, saying that she hopes it spawns a “ripple of kindness”.

“We have all, as a world, been through so much that hopefully we can come out the other side and not be assholes,” she said.

The event was a fundraiser for four organisations: Choose Love, Mind, Samaritans and the Charlie Weller Trust. A number of celebrities performed at the event including Natalia Imbruglia, Professor Green and Fleur East, while Dermot O’Leary, Jack Fincham, Georgia Steel, Jake Quickenden and Shaughna Phillips were in attendance.

Caroline’s family announced Flackstock earlier this year, with her mum Christine citing her daughter’s love of music festivals.

At the festival’s launch, she said: “My Caroline was never more herself or happier than at a music festival with her sister and her friends.

“Flackstock is the wonderful idea of those who knew her best and the perfect way to remember her singing, dancing and most of all laughing.

“Not only is Flackstock the most positive way to honour Carrie, but charities that she loved will benefit from the proceeds.”

She added: “My family are so proud that so many people who knew Carrie loved her so very much.”
