Thanks from the NSPCC

I AM writing on behalf of the NSPCC in Eastbourne to thank your readers for their support over the last 12 months.

The NSPCC relies heavily on the support of local people in order to provide its services for children and their families and we really do appreciate the efforts that people go to.

I would also like to ask readers when thinking about their New Year resolutions to consider helping the NSPCC to make a fundamental difference to the lives of vulnerable children and young people in this area in 2011.

Whatever skills, talent or time people have available the NSPCC could put them to good use to help support vital services such as ChildLine and the NSPCC’s Helpline for adults to call if they are concerned about a child.

This year we are making a special appeal to anyone in Eastbourne who has secured a place in the 2011 London Marathon, to consider running it in aid of the NSPCC – we can supply running vests, sponsor forms and training hints and tips to anyone that is able to help us in this way.

Anyone wishing to find out more about supporting the NSPCC should call the local fundraising team on 01293 651840 or log on to

Best wishes for 2011.
