How your fundraising helps

The Coronavirus crisis is making life hard for children – and many are contacting our Childline service for help. We’ve seen a surge in calls to Childline from children worried about the Coronavirus. Many are struggling with their mental health, or don’t feel safe in their own homes. Your support can help us be here when they need someone to turn to.

Here’s Why….

PROTECTING CHILDREN TODAY, PREVENTING ABUSE TOMORROW.

Child abuse is preventable, not inevitable. That’s why, every day, NSPCC work to protect children, prevent abuse and make child abuse a thing of the past. As the UK’s leading children’s charity fighting to end child abuse, they’ve remained committed to this mission for over 100 years.

But all this is only possible with your support. As an independent charity, which receives around 90% of its funding from supporters, NSPCC rely on the support of people like you to make sure they can keep every child who needs them safe. Every pound raised and every penny received will help make sure they can reach more children.

Your miles can make a difference

We are delighted to announce our Charity partner for 2020 will be The National Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Children.

Kate Hershkowitz, NSPCC Community Fundraising Manager for Sussex, said

‘We are delighted to be the chosen charity for the Mid Sussex Marathon in 2020. We would love those taking part to raise funds to support the NSPCC’s work, including our Speak out Stay safe programme which visits primary schools across Sussex, helping children aged 5-11 to recognise abuse, understand it’s never their fault, and know how to speak out if they need help. It costs just £3 to speak to one child, so any funds runners are able to raise by taking part in this unique event really will make a difference.’
