TransUnion raises £11,300 for NSPCC and announces Save the Children as 2020 charity
Global information and insights company TransUnion has raised £11,300 for child protection charity NSPCC in support of its Childline service, which provides young people with a place to turn to for help.
TransUnion’s colleagues supported this initiative in the UK with a host of activities throughout 2019. These included a trek to Everest Base Camp and participation in the Welsh 3,000s, with a dedicated team climbing 15 mountains, totalling over 3,000 feet in height, in less than 24 hours.
Tim Bradshaw, NSPCC regional corporate fundraising manager said: “We’re really grateful to TransUnion for this donation to our Childline service. The funds raised will enable us to provide more resource, ensuring we can be there for children that need our protection and support.”
Rebecca Aberdein, HR director for TransUnion in the UK added: “We’ve built a really strong partnership with the NSPCC over the past year and are delighted with the funds we’ve raised for Childline. We aim to be a force for good in our communities and child protection is a key focus for us globally. It’s been great to put that into practice here in the UK by supporting the invaluable service that Childline provides.
“We’ll be continuing this theme in the year ahead, as our colleagues have nominated Save the Children as our charity partner for 2020. We’re really looking forward to working together to raise greater awareness of the issues young people are facing, as well as much-needed funds to help protect, educate and care for children around the world.”
Speaking of the new partnership, Matt Forrest, head of regional fundraising and engagement for Save the Children said: “We’re absolutely delighted to have been chosen as TransUnion’s new charity partner. Save the Children’s work is only possible thanks to the support of organisations like TransUnion and their amazing commitment to make the world a better place for children. Together we can do so much more than acting alone. With TransUnion’s support we’re determined to help every child become who they want to be.”
