Estate agency Connells, which has a branch in Rugby, has donated £2,360 to the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (NSPCC).
The money, which was raised at an event held by Connells for its senior staff, was recently presented to the NSPCC by chief executive Stuart Flavell.
“We at Connells regularly donate to the NSPCC and have chosen to support this charity across our estate agency branch network,” says Stuart.
“It is a pleasure to give this money to such a worthy cause and a well-known and successful charitable organisation.”
The NSPCC is the UK’s leading charity specialising in child protection and the prevention of cruelty to children.
The charity campaigns to change the law, provide ChildLine and the NSPCC helpline service, and works directly in communities running services for children and families.
“We would like to thank Connells estate agency for its recent donation,” says Cora Appleton, corporate fundraising executive at the NSPCC.
“The money raised could pay for us to recruit and train one ChildLine Counsellor who in their first year could help up to 200 children through their worries and distress.”
The NSPCC is the UK’s leading children’s charity specialising in child protection.
Their vision is to end cruelty to children in the UK and we make a difference for all children by standing up for their rights, listening to them, helping them when they need us and by making them safe.
