Local Businesses asked to answer ChildLine’s Call
Last year in Essex, ChildLine received 4,110 of landline calls from local children. This year is the 30th anniversary of the service being launched and the NSPCC is asking local companies to join a new initiative in support of their vital work.
It is called 30 for 30 and the idea is simple – 30 local companies each raising £2,000 for ChildLine in its 30th year.
Local NSPCC Fundraising Manager, Sarah Laffling said, “Our ChildLine service has been here for every child for thirty years and countless children in Essex have been helped by our volunteer counsellors in that time. We are celebrating that but at the same time we know this is also a time to look to the future and we need to raise the funds that are vital to ensure this service is here for the next generation too.”
£2,000 represents the cost of recruiting and training each new ChildLine volunteer counsellor and the first 100 calls they receive. The charity has a range of ideas for how local companies can raise the money, by holding events or taking part in their Big Board Game Day or Go Green for Halloween celebration in October.
Sarah Laffling continued, “By supporting this initiative and becoming one of our local 30 for 30 companies, you will be making a really positive difference to service that is here for all our children.”
