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


Thank you to everybody who sponsored me as one of 20 people playing against former World Champion, Boris Spassky.  I lasted for 23 moves before succumbing to defeat but at least we have raised a substantial amount of money for Childline in the process

I am still hopeful of raising £1,000 so if you have not sponsored me already please consider doing so..

Thanks for your support.
