Get Your Sparkle On encourages the public to show their support for the children’s charity on December 11 by wearing sparkling clothing or organising sparkle-themed events and this weekend our Royal Albert Dock will show support.
The Liverpool landmark is the first around the country to ‘go green’ in support of the NSPCC, with a stunning light projection, which was designed exclusively for the charity and Albert Dock by Double Take, which illuminates the Merseyside Maritime Museum with a striking and unique message.
Deborah Sefton, fundraiser for the NSPCC, said: “We are over the moon that Liverpool’s beautiful Royal Albert Dock is supporting us this year, and encouraging people to get their sparkle on in such a stunning and eye-catching fashion.
“It’s easy for anyone to take part in Get Your Sparkle On this December 11 – whether you’re just wearing a sparkly jumper, or organising a sparkling bake-off at work, every single penny raised will go towards helping children and young people get the help they need this Christmas. Special thanks to National Museums Liverpool for their support in making this happen”
Clare Rawlinson, Marketing Director for Royal Albert Dock said: “Everyone at Royal Albert Dock was delighted to support the NSPCC this Christmas. We pulled out all the stops to create this bespoke projection, and we’re very proud of it.
“We hope everyone who sees the dock sparkle this week takes home the message that Childline is a fantastic service which helps thousands of children every year – even at Christmas – and deserves all the support it can get.”
Get Your Sparkle On leads into the NSPCC’s Light For Every Childhood Christmas campaign.
1 in 5 children in the UK suffer abuse, and every year, specially-trained counsellors in Liverpool and around the country answer calls from children suffering their darkest hour. Sadly, 1 in 3 calls to Childline this Christmas will go unanswered, and the fundraising campaign aims to bring a light to every childhood.
Every sparkle, every sequin and every pound raised for the NSPCC helps protect children. Our specially-trained counsellors speak to children and young people in their darkest hours every day of the year, even on Christmas Day, and £20 would help answer five calls to the Childline service.
