Stamps could raise vital cash too, and we are asking readers to send them in – as long as they can fit in an A4 envelope – in aid of the campaign. Childline warns many young people are already at “crisis point” when they phone or email in. Dame Esther said: “Childline works night and day to be there for as many children and teenagers as possible.
“However, with more and more young people contacting us online, and these counselling sessions taking double the time as those conducted over the phone, our resources are becoming increasingly stretched.
“We are really excited that a great campaigning newspaper like the Daily Mirror is backing our efforts to get to young people in
need of our help more quickly. “We would also urge children and teenagers to keep contacting us and to stay on the call or online until a counsellor is available.” There has been a sharp rise in demand for online and latenight counselling from Childline.
Children call for help on issues like domestic and sexual abuse, eating disorders, substance abuse, bullying and gender and sexuality issues.
To send your stamps, please post to Daily Mirror Christmas Appeal, 1 Canada Square, Canary Wharf, London, E14 5AP. Please do not send anything larger than an A4 envelope.
