Herman and the team are seeking National sponsors who can help us turn our ambition into a reality.

In return for helping, sponsors will receive a large number of promotional, marketing and PR benefits, including an advert in the 1.5 million books we are hoping to print and distribute to EVERY family with a 9 or 10 year old in the UK.

Childline - providing a place for children to seek help and advice for over 30 years.

No problem is too big or too small.
What a Child says to Childline stays with Childline – unless we are really worried or concerned about them.
It’s free to call.
Open all day, every day.
The call will not show up on any bill.

Talk to Childline, and don’t have another day of feeling sad.
