A children's charity is appealing for volunteers to take part in street collections as part of a national event.

NSPCC Cymru/Wales is bringing people across the country together this summer to have fun, while helping to protect children from abuse and neglect.

Childhood Day, on Friday, 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 people to be street collectors for a couple of hours on June 10 to fundraise in Wrexham and Llandudno.

Jessica Finnegan, NSPCC Cymru/Wales fundraiser, said: “Last year, the NSPCC helpline made 1,048 referrals about abuse and neglect to agencies in Wales. With the support of local people, 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 Wrexham and Llandudno collections, 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.”
