Adrian Sanders, MP for Torbay, is lending his support to the NSPCC’s new ‘Share Aware’ campaign which aims to get families talking about socialising safely online.
There’s still time for people in Devon to make Christmas extra special this year by ordering a personalised Letter from Santa for a child, and at the same time raise vital funds for the NSPCC.
For a suggested donation of £5 to the charity, a child will receive a fun, colourful and personalised Letter from Santa, arriving via ‘Rudolph Mail’. The Letters feature a festive story tailored to their age and you can choose from seven different beautifully illustrated styles. Santa can even write a special poem to celebrate baby’s first Christmas – a keepsake to treasure for years to come.
Each letter includes the child’s name, age, gender, best friend or family member’s name, favourite activity and achievements, as well as a special ‘PS’ option when you request your letter online. You can also choose whether the letter is signed by ‘Santa’ or ‘Father Christmas’.
Last year, 25,785 children in the South West received a Letter from Santa.
Alison Armer, NSPCC community fundraising manager for Devon, said: “Christmas is such a special time of year for children and what could make it more special than a letter from Santa himself. By requesting a Letter from Santa, not only will you make Christmas even more magical for a child but you’re helping the NSPCC to be there for vulnerable children, right here in Devon and across the UK.”
Every £5 raised by Letter from Santa will help ChildLine be there for a child in danger or distress, either online or over the phone. Every £12 raised could help us talk to one primary school child about abuse and give them the confidence to talk to a trusted adult. And every £50 could help an NSPCC practitioner deliver two hours telephone support to anyone with concerns about a child.
The reindeer mailroom is open until midnight on 17 December 2013 and all those who request a Letter from Santa will be entered into a draw to win a once-in-a-lifetime trip to Lapland for a family of four.
Order your Letter from Santa online at www.nspcc.org.uk/santa or by calling 0845 839 9304.
