What will I be doing?
You’ll be part of a team collecting donations, chatting to the public and spreading the word about Childhood Day and the NSPCC. Depending on your collection you will either have a bucket, or a contactless device to collect donations. This will only involve a few hours of your time.
Once you have signed up you will be given all the details you need, and your Collection Leader will be in touch with you a week before to give you specific information. All the materials and T-shirt (if requested) will be provided to you on the day. All you need to do is turn up.
When my mummy told me that lots of people were helping collect money for children this Childhood Day it made me have a warm fuzzy feeling in my tummy. I think that everyone who’s collecting is a superhero!
What is Childhood Day?
Half a million children a year suffer abuse in the UK. That means 7 children in a classroom experience abuse before they turn 18. Childhood Day on 10 June brings everyone across the UK together to have fun and protect children. By volunteering for a few hours you can play your part to help keep children safe.
Staying safe when volunteering
The safety of our volunteers and supporters is vital. We will continually be monitoring any changes to the government guidance and covid-19 updates. If restrictions are introduced, some collections may be postponed or may not be possible to go ahead. If this happens, we'll be in touch with you directly.
