New initiative to celebrate 30 years of ChildLine

I’m the new Community Fundraising Manager for the NSPCC in Sussex and wanted to introduce myself to the community through your publications as I’m really keen to engage and develop a dynamic supporter network of businesses, individuals and local groups to support the charity’s work.

I will also be working with an existing portfolio of corporate partners and volunteer fundraising groups to highlight the work of the NSPCC in Sussex over the coming months.

One area I will be focusing on is our 30 for 30 initiative in celebration of ChildLine’s 30th birthday this year and I am extremely keen to get companies on board to support this vital service in Sussex.

In order to do this, I am looking for 30 companies across the county to support this fundraising campaign, each endeavouring to raise £2,000 for the service – an amount that represents the average cost of recruiting and training one new ChildLine volunteer and funding the first 100 calls they answer.

In 2014/15, 4,251 calls were made from Sussex so it is vital we don’t just celebrate ChildLine in its 30th year – we need to make sure the service is here for the next generation.

Any companies interested in supporting the 30 for 30 initiative should contact me on 07769 301 517 or moira.mitchell@nspcc.org.uk for more information.

I’m particularly keen to hear from any companies that are celebrating their 30th birthdays too.

Many thanks for your support.
