Letter: Thanks from NSPCC

I AM WRITING on behalf of the NSPCC in West Sussex to thank your readers for their support over the last 12 months.

The NSPCC relies heavily on the support of local people in order to provide its services for children and their families and we really do appreciate the efforts that people go to.

I would also like to ask readers when thinking about their New Year resolutions, to consider supporting ChildLine during its 25th anniversary year, a service dedicated to making a fundamental difference to the lives of vulnerable children and young people in West Sussex and throughout the UK.

Whatever skills, talent or time people have available the NSPCC could put them to good use to help support these vital services and help continue the charity’s work in 2012.

This year we are making a special appeal to anyone in West Sussex to get involved in the Brighton Marathon on April 15 and fundraise for the NSPCC.

We would also like to encourage people to enter our Step Change 2012 challenge on March 4 and race up the iconic ‘Gherkin’ building in London in a bid to raise funds for ChildLine.

Anyone wishing to find out more about the NSPCC or how they can support us should contact their local fundraising team on 01293 651 840 or log on to www.nspcc.org.uk.

Best wishes for 2012,

RUSSELL SQUIRE
