NSPCC launches 'Letter from Santa' campaign

Dear Editor,

As we approach the festive season I would like to ask your readers in Plymouth to do something amazing this Christmas to support the vital work of the NSPCC by requesting a Letter from Santa.

We’ve teamed up with Santa himself to send personalised letters all the way from Lapland.

Each letter is printed and posted directly to your child in a festive envelope. You can choose the background design and fill in your child’s personal information such as age, best friend’s name or particular achievements throughout the year.

All we ask in return is a donation to help us be there for children, whatever their worries, this Christmas and beyond. £5 could buy paints to help a child who has been abused to express their feelings and begin to feel like themselves again. £8 could cover the cost for our volunteer counsellors to answer two calls to Childline – in 2017/18 our volunteers handled 1,000 counselling sessions with children in Plymouth

Without support from the people of Plymouth, we simply wouldn’t be able to deliver our vital services which offer a lifeline to many children and young people whose lives have been affected by abuse.

Your donations will help our fight for every childhood. Abuse ruins childhoods, but it can be prevented. That's why we're here.
