Pop the kettle on to protect a child


Islanders are being encouraged to help protect children and raise awareness of abuse... by popping on the kettle.

NSPCC's week-long 'Stop for Tea' initiative kicks off tomorrow, and the charity say some are already preparing to rustle up baked goodies for the tea party-themed fundraiser.

The aim is to raise valuable funds that can go towards improving the welfare of children and young people in Jersey.

Chair of the Jersey Fundraising Committee Nicola Santos-Costa said: "We would love everyone to hold a tea party, whether it is at home or at work.

"It doesn't matter how big or small your tea party is as all the money raised mounts up and makes a real difference to the lives of children."

Benefiting from the fundraiser will be two projects: 'Letting the Future In' and 'Speak Out Stay Safe'.

'Letting the Future In' looks at allowing children and young people, who are victims of sexual abuse, to access therapy to help rebuild their lives.

'Speak Out Stay Safe', meanwhile, is a project set up in Jersey to raise awareness of various types of abuse. The project sees charity reps visit local schools to let the children know what to do if they are experiencing abuse.
