Many ways to help NSPCC char­ity

Harefield Gazette - - OPINION -

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 Uxbridge, 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 is why the NSPCC is here. That is what drives our work, and that is why as long as there is 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.
