Today during our assembly Kim Williams from the NSPCC talked to the children about the work of her charity. This was an Informative and inspirational assembly. The children were invited to help other children by raising vital funds to support the work of the NSPCC which includes the special helpline service for children – ChildLine, which has recently celebrated its 25th anniversary, counselling over 2.6 million children in that time.
I do appreciate that in the current economic climate, there will be other pressures on every household budget right now, however it is at these times when children are more vulnerable than ever and demand for the NSPCC’s services has increased significantly.
This year alone ChildLine aims to answer 650,000 contacts from children and young people. The NSPCC needs your help to make sure that each and every one of those children continues to receive the help they need. I truly hope that you can find that little extra help for this special cause.
Your child has been given Workout sponsor form. Next week in PE the children will be getting fit and active and raising money for the NSPCC. If you would like to participate in this activity, please ensure that the form and sponsor money are returned to school by Wednesday 3rd December.
Charities are able to claim Gift Aid on contributions from UK tax payers. The sponsor form should be completed giving the sponsor’s full name and address, including the post code, and a tick put in the UK tax payer box.
Every day in the UK, children face overwhelming problems. For many of these children the NSPCC and ChildLine are their only hope. The money that we raise at Woodcote will make a real difference to children’s lives.
Your support is very much appreciated.
