Why Support Childline?
Funds raised from the event will support Childline, our 24hr listening service for children and young people all across Ireland. We are always here to support on any issue no matter how big or small!
Last year, our 24/7 Childline Listening Service experienced a significant increase in conversations from children seeking support in relation to thoughts about suicide, conflict in the home and feelings of low mood and unhappiness. We receive on average over 2,000 contacts a week from children and teenagers.
They are given the opportunity to talk about their feelings and worries and they receive instant support from an adult. When these children tell us “I was very sad today, I’m very glad I talked to you, thank you so much” or “Mha mha mha (blowing kisses). I like talking to you. Bye, thank you”, we know how important this service is.
We rely on 75% of our funding to come from donors and fundraisers like you. We need your support.
