LETTER: A thank you from the NSPCC

editorial image

I WOULD like to take this opportunity to thank all readers who have supported the work of the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (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 Mail 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 becoming an NSPCC ChildLine schools service volunteer.

They can also get involved in an event by setting up stalls or taking photographs, cheering-on NSPCC participants in a sporting race or activity, or by hosting a fund-raising event like a bake or jumble sale.

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 about the recruitment drive please call me on 07976 065053 or email nihad.cehic@nspcc.org.uk.
