ChildLine

ChildLine is the UK's free and confidential, 24 hour helpline for children in distress or danger. Trained volunteer counsellors comfort, advise, support and protect children and young people who may feel they have nowhere else to turn. Children call ChildLine about a wide range of problems, but the most common problems are abuse (both sexual and physical), bullying, serious family tensions, worries about friends' welfare and teenage pregnancy. Children and young people can call ChildLine about anything – no problem is too big or too small. ChildLine is a service provided by the NSPCC

Charity Registration No. 216401 and SC037717

Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit our JustGiving page.

This year, we will be raising money for one of Center Parcs' charity partners, ChildLine, supporting the ChildLine Schools Service. This is a ground-breaking service that aims to protect a generation of children, one primary school at a time. The initiative aims to get specially trained volunteers visiting every primary school in the UK to help children understand abuse, give them the confidence to talk, and show them who's ready to listen.

We both took part in the London Marathon last year and completed the Silverstone half marathon this year.

Eddie: "I began running a few years ago as a way of improving my general fitness and have completed The Great North Run, Nottingham's Outlaw Half and a few sprint triathlons since. I'm hoping to beat last year's time of 4 hours 54 minutes this year, and it's great to have the opportunity to support all of the good work that ChildLine does."

James: "I'm built for rugby rather than running and struggle to fit in training during the week but I plan to give the London Marathon everything I've got, and also hope to beat last year's time of 5 hours 20 minutes. ChildLine provides an invaluable service, and I'm so pleased to be able to help support this."
