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. 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 £9 could help answer one phone call to the NSPCC that protects a child from serious harm.
In 2011, almost 45,000 people across the UK contacted the NSPCC with concerns about a child. Over half the people who contacted us had been worried about a child for more than a month. Waiting to call could leave a child in danger. It is vital that people don’t wait until they’re certain to report abuse.
“It was a great relief for me to speak to the NSPCC counsellor. I immediately asked if I had done the right thing in calling, and she reassured me that I had. I felt taken seriously and that at least I had done something for this little boy.” Caller to the NSPCC.
The more people that feel comfortable contacting us when they are worried about a child, the more children we can help. You can help spread this message by sharing our video and donating your status, visit www.nspcc.org.uk/facebook.
