2021 marks 35 years of Childline, a service run by the NSPCC that is renowned for providing free, professional and confidential support from trained counsellors to children and young people who may be struggling with any issues, big or small.
In celebration of this amazing milestone, we’re proud to be taking part in the Childline 35 Club campaign from 1st June-31st August to help raise £30,000 – the cost it takes to run Childline services for just one day.
The Colchester NSPCC Business Group’s goal throughout June, July and August this year is to raise at least £1,000 towards the £30k goal, and we’re calling on local businesses and individuals to get involved and help us fundraise for this amazing cause.
Take on a #35ClubChallenge and promote it on social media to raise awareness, encourage your followers to donate – and importantly, have some laughs along the way! This could be anything from a 35-minute run, a 35-question quiz or singing 35 karaoke songs… Your imagination is the limit – so feel free to bring your own ideas into the mix! You’ll need to share your challenges (the more you take on, the better!) across your social channels using the hashtag #35ClubChallenge, making sure to share the fundraising link with your followers so that they can donate to the cause.
You can also get stuck into in the Childline 35 Day Challenge – a calendar full of tasks and challenges to complete over 35 days. Document yourself or your team completing each daily task on your social platform(s), again using the hashtag and sharing the link, to play your part.
But what’s in it for you?
Everyone who joins the Childline 35 Club by taking part in their own #35ClubChallenge on social media, helping us to raise money towards our own £1,000 goal, will be entered into our competition and could ultimately be dubbed the 35 Club Champion! We’ll keep an eye on all content, looking for effort, creativity and enthusiasm, and there will be prizes up for grabs for first, second and third place – so it’s ‘all to play for’! Our winner and the runners-up will be announced on 31st August.
We’ll also be sharing content posted using #35ClubChallenge – so this is a great opportunity to promote your business while showing your support for the NSPCC. Make sure to follow the Colchester NSPCC Business Group on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and TikTok to keep up with the campaign and see what everyone is getting up to!
