Birmingham Venue Hosts 1950s Night For Childrens Charity 2009: Involved Birmingham

Birmingham venue hosts 1950s night for childrens charity

Get involved A Birmingham venue is to host a 1950s themed charity event for the NSPCC’s Child’s Voice Appeal.
The T-Bird and Pink Ladies prom will take place at The Jam House in the Jewellery Quarter and hopes to raise money towards the appeal in an effort to expand the telephone services that the charity offers including NSPCC Helpline and ChildLine. The ChildLine base in Birmingham, which was launched in 2002, is second to London in the volume of calls it receives on a daily basis although a lack of resources has meant that the base can only answer two-thirds of the calls that it receives. NSPCC is the UK’s leading children’s charity, consisting of 180 projects that are run throughout the United Kingdom and Channel Islands with an aim of stopping child cruelty and poverty and supporting the notion that every child has the right to a happy, safe and fulfilling childhood. The telephone service, ChildLine, offers a chance for children to ring in and talk to trained volunteers who can help and support them if they are in need. Last year, the service took over 20,000 calls which resulted in around 1,000 young people needing immediate attention for safeguarding issues. Money raised from the event will go directly to the NSPCC’s Child’s Voice Appeal which aims to reach a target of raising &pound4.2&thinspmillion over the next three years.
Organisers are hoping the event will be as successful as previous fundraising events such as the Hollywood Glamour themed ball in 2006 which raised &pound37,500 while a masquerade ball held in 2007 raised &pound43,800.
