Hear about how important the work of the NSPCC is from one of our fantastic fundraising team
Donations made to our fundraising page will benefit the NSPCC Nottingham Service Centre - Jenny Farr House
The NSPCC as a national charity has been helping to protect children from cruelty for over 150 years in the UK. Sadly, the need to protect children is increasing rather than diminishing, particularly with the internet, but more currently in the lockdown of 2020.
Child abuse not only damages and destroys young lives, it brings serious long-term consequences for families, communities and society as a whole.
Almost 90% of income for the Nottinghamshire service centre comes from fundraising supporters such as yourself. It cost around £800,000 a year to continue to provide their services.
Without your donations and support many NSPCC services would have to close down within 6 months
The generosity and support of fundraising activities such as the Woodborough open gardens event help provide valuable funds to ensure the NSPCC can continue their vital work locally.
About NSPCC Nottinghamshire services
Nottingham hosts a team of volunteers who speak to children calling the Childline number 0800 1111. They speak to children about all manner of things that are worrying them, from exam results, to sibling problems, to suicidal feelings, to disclosing abuse. Calls to Childline are completely confidential UNLESS a crime has been committed or someone’s life is in danger.
Jenny Farr House is situated on Cranmer Street, Nottingham and social workers help a number of vulnerable children, and sometimes their families, over a period of time to help them make the right choices. To empower them to protect themselves, to provide support and advice and a safe place for them to meet.
Lockdown has caused an increased number of telephone calls to Childline for children feeling worried, or vulnerable and your donation today will help make sure that we can continue to protect children using Jenny Farr House in the future.
Every penny counts and thank you in advance for your support!
