Name: Messathon Surrey
Location: Frimley Lodge Park, GU16 6HY
The NSPCC hold a yearly event called the NSCC Messathon, and 2018 is no different! This yearly event is to bring awareness to the NSPCC, celebrate the achievements and work of those working in the field of child care, and raise donations for the charity and the work they do. This year will have events in two places: at Frimley Lodge Park in Surrey on the 9th June, and Sandwell Valley Park in the West Midlands on the 21st & 22nd July.
The event is a full day of activities, culminating in a muddy obstacle course for the entire family. Similar to Tough Mudder, but something kids can take part in too! You must pay to register for it, but the price goes towards paying for the event and any extra goes toward the charity. The NSPCC also gives you tons of resources to help you raise funds for your sponsorship from friends and family to also go towards funding the charity and their work!
NSPCC say that the money made from donations goes towards their child support services, which range from staffing the Childline callcentre that supports children calling in times of need, paying for a trained practitioner to support families in caring for children & supporting their “Speak Out, Stay Safe” programme, which visits schools and educates children on how to keep themselves safe and protect from abuse.
