NSPCC one of your New Year's resolutions for 2013
THE NSPCC in Southport
is urging people to make 2013 the year of finally keeping those
well-intentioned resolutions. Whether it's time, money or energy
you have to spare, no matter how much or how little, you can
help make a fundamental difference to the lives of children and
young people across the region.
The NSPCC has a variety of opportunities available across
Southport which include volunteering for the Childline Schools
Service, delivering assemblies at local schools followed by an
interactive workshop a week later, helping with fundraising
events, or taking part in one of our many sponsored events.
Louise Stimson, NSPCC head of local fundraising, said:-
"There are so many ways you can help us help more children and
young people in 2013. Please take some time to visit our website
and check out the different range of volunteering roles and
events. There really is something for everyone, no matter how
much or little time you can spare. If volunteering isn't for
you, there are still lots of ways you can play a part in our
work here. We'd love to help you organise a fundraising event in
your local community or even at work, support you in tackling an
Ecuador Adventure Challenge or Everest, or cheer you on in a
marathon or one of our hiking challenges, the HACK Hike Against
Cruelty to Kids."
Becoming a fundraising volunteer is a great way to use your
existing skills and can also give you the opportunity to develop
new ones. As part of a group of volunteers your tasks could
include: finding raffle or auction prizes, promoting an event to
your friends, family and colleagues or planning or supporting an
event. You could also organise your own fundraising activity,
whether it's out and about, at home, at school or in the office.
Here are a few examples: tea parties and picnics, concerts and
open gardens, quizzes and swap shop fashion evenings.

events happening across Southport and the North West please
