NSPCC Scotland Childhood Day- Aberdeen Collection Volunteers

*Aberdeen volunteers needed for NSPCC’s flagship Childhood Day*

NSPCC Scotland is bringing people in Aberdeen together this summer to have fun while helping to protect children from abuse and neglect.

Childhood Day, which is on June 10, is the NSPCC’s landmark charity day where families, friends and colleagues fundraise and take action to help keep children safe.

To help make this the best Childhood Day yet, the NSPCC is appealing for volunteers on Friday 10 and Saturday 11 June at the ASDA Beach Superstore from 10am until 6pm.

Caroline Renton, Supporter Fundraising Manager for NSPCC Scotland, said:
“Last year, the NSPCC Helpline made 897 referrals to agencies in Scotland about child abuse and neglect concerns – an average of two referrals a day. With the support of local people here in Aberdeen, we can take action against child abuse, and raise funds to ensure young people always have someone to turn to. We need volunteers to help at our Aberdeen collection, so please contact us if you’re able to give your time, energy and enthusiasm. It would be great if you could spare a couple of hours to help us. Together we can make all the difference for children. Or you may prefer to set up a fundraising event. Whether you’re organising a sponsored kickabout in the park, a board game, a musical get-together or an online gaming tournament, we want your help to get the UK playing and to raise money to help us keep children safe from abuse.”
