Why Fundraise

The NSPCC relies heavily on the generosity and support of our volunteers and fundraisers.  Your support and fundraising efforts is the reason why our life-saving work doesn’t grind to a halt. It is our heartbeat, because almost 90% of our fundraising comes from supporters like you. The children we work with will never be able to thank you personally for your fundraising support, so on their behalf please accept the grateful thanks of everyone at the NSPCC and choosing to fundraise and run the NSPCC Milton Keynes Half Marathon.

Where your fundraising goes:

I am so immensely grateful that you were there to listen without telling me I am lying, judging me or making me feel worse about myself and that is the amazing thing about these chats, they can save lives.” (Girl, age 14, Childline)
