I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of your readers who have supported the work of the NSPCC during the last year. Without the backing of local people the NSPCC would not be able to help abused children rebuild their lives, or be there for parents who desperately need advice and support.
As we move into 2015 I would like to appeal to your readers to make a very special kind of New Year’s resolution for the NSPCC. ‘Just One Day’ is a call for people to come forward and volunteer some time to support our work – even if people can only spare one day, it will be a massive help.
There are many different ways that people can volunteer their time including helping out with admin at one of our offices; becoming an NSPCC ChildLine Schools Service volunteer; becoming a ChildLine helpline counsellor; getting involved in an event by setting up stalls or taking photographs, or cheering-on NSPCC participants in a sporting race or activity.
In Sussex, we especially need fundraising volunteers. So whether you’re interested in running a marathon, running a stall at a local fete, or just sparing a few hours to help at a collection, we would love to hear from you.
Abuse ruins childhood, but it can be prevented. That’s why the NSPCC is here. That’s what drives our work, and that’s why – as long as there’s abuse the NSPCC will fight for every childhood.
Please join us in the fight for every childhood by volunteering some time to support the NSPCC, whether you can spare a day a week or just one day. To find out more call 0203 188 3932 or log on to nspcc.org.uk/volunteer.
