Abuse changes childhoods. But so can we. Join our Great North Run team in 2016 and help us fight for every childhood!
The UK’s biggest and most famous half marathon, the route takes you from Newcastle, over the iconic Tyne Bridge and on to the finish in picturesque coastal town of South Shields.
Every mile you run and every penny you raise will mean that when a child needs us, we’re there. Together we can rebuild children’s lives and prevent abuse from ruining anymore.
We’ve collected approximately £27,600 worth of toys through our Christmas Toy Appeal for the NSPCC – thank you!
Last year we announced the NSPCC as our Charity of the Year for 2014 and 2015 and already we’ve collected an estimated £27,600 worth of toys for local children – thanks to you! We are supporting the NSPCC - in Sunderland and all of the money we raise for the NSPCC will be spent on local services in Sunderland, like the NSPCC Schools Service.
We also recently held our annual 'Bring a Pound to Work' day, where once again we helped raise thousands of pounds for the NSPCC here in Sunderland. Local firms, schools and the public, generously donated funds to help.
The NSPCC Schools Service aims to visit every primary school across Wearside to talk to children about abuse, how to protect themselves and where to get help if they need it.
By helping children understand and identify abuse in an age appropriate way, the NSPCC hopes that its NSPCC Schools Service can encourage children to speak out earlier and protect themselves and others from the devastating effects of abuse.
Since its launch in 2012, the ChildLine Schools Service has made 98 school visits on Wearside, benefitting more than 7,458 local children, with thousands more set to benefit over the next two years.
Julian Carter, managing director of 103.4 Sun FM, said: “Our Charity of the Year partnership is a key part of our commitment to the community. Together with our employees, suppliers and listeners we’ve raised thousands of pounds for our charity partners over the past few years. I’m delighted that as a result of our support for NSPCC, we will be able to help protect a generation of children.”
Nihad Cehic, NSPCC community fundraising manager for the North East, said: “The money raised from the partnership will fund services like the pioneering NSPCC Schools Service on Wearside, which helps primary school children understand abuse, giving them the confidence to talk about it, the knowledge to prevent it, and the courage to find help if they ever need it. Sun FM has already raised a fantastic amount and I want to thank SUN FM, its suppliers and listeners for their support."
