The Yorkshire Cancer Centre appeal raises funds for St James's Institute of Oncology in Leeds, the largest cancer centre in the UK, providing diagnostic and therapeutic services for cancer patients.
The NSPCC has chosen Clothes Aid to collect clothes and shoes on its behalf throughout the UK. In Scotland the money raised through the collection scheme will go directly to fund the ChildLine service in Scotland. This year, Clothes Aid guarantees to raise at least £1,062,500 for the NSPCC - that's £85 for every tonne of clothes, shoes and textiles collected. A donation worth £4 could pay for a child to get in touch with a ChildLine counsellor.
In 2010-11, we received 41,466 landline calls to ChildLine from Scotland Children and young people contact ChildLine about a wide range of issues including bullying, serious family tension and abuse. The children who contact us often feel as if they have nowhere else to turn. We have 12 bases across the UK in cities including Glasgow and Aberdeen.
We want to continue to be there for every child who needs us, and want all children to know that we will be here when they contact us.
Every penny will make a real difference for children so on behalf of all them - thank you very much for your support.
