We’re delighted to announce that NSPCC is our new Charity of the Year for 2015-2016.
Once again, we're bringing together our two major fundraising activities – the Virgin Money London Marathon and our Charity of the Year to support NSPCC in their aim to keep children safe.
About NSPCC - ChildLine
ChildLine is a free 24/7, confidential helpline for children and young people. Whenever children need them and whatever their worry, ChildLine is there to help – on the phone and online. Children talk about things like family problems, bullying, self-harm and depression. Problems that they often feel they can’t talk to anyone else about. Some are going through the toughest times of their lives. In 2014 ChildLine held an average of 25,000 counselling sessions a week with children.

The impact of our support
Because trained volunteers are so busy, they can’t speak to every child who tries to get in touch. And each call they are unable to answer could be from a child in a life-threatening situation. They want to change this. They want to speak to every child who contacts them. With our help, it’s possible.

We’re also focused on not just what we can raise in monetary terms, but how the many skills of Virgin staff can be put to good use.Virgin Unite is the ‘not-for-profit’ entrepreneurial foundation of the Virgin Group. Virgin Unite works with great partners around the world to develop new approaches to tough social and environmental issues.

Helping the community
As well as supporting Virgin Unite, every member of staff is given a free day to allow them to get involved with work in the community. Through this, our people work with local and national projects and many take part in a wide range of fundraising - running marathons, swimathons, dragon boat racing, mountain climbing, cake baking and much more.
