Pippa O’Connor has launched this year’s Cheerios Childline Breakfast, which will take place from Monday 15th to Sunday 21st of October.
ISPCC Childline is encouraging businesses and community groups to take part and raise vital funds for Ireland’s only 24-hour listening service for children, which answered over 380,000 calls in 2017.
Cheerios and Childline are encouraging businesses, community groups, organisations, schools and crèches, to come together, join in on the fun and register to host a breakfast and raise much-needed funds for Childline. Organisers will receive a fundraising pack containing posters, collection boxes and sponsorship cards after registering.
If you register by Friday 21st September, you could be with a chance to win a special visit from Irish actor and ISPCC supporter, Rory Cowan who will drop by with Cheerios in hand and enjoy a Cheerios Childline Breakfast with the entire team.
Speaking at the launch, CEO of the ISPCC, John Church, said: “Cheerios Childline Breakfast is hugely important to Childline and we hope to see many businesses, workplaces and organisations registering for the first time, as well as welcoming back many who support us annually. We are very grateful to everyone who hosts a breakfast takes part – your generosity helps ensure that we are always there to listen to children, every day, and night.”
Participants can register today at childlinebreakfast.ie or Text RISE to 50300 to donate €4. ISPCC Childline will receive a minimum of €3.60. The helpline number is 076 6805278.
