KPMG’s Around the World Flagship Fundraiser is running from 1 – 30 September 2020 and is a virtual event focused on fun, fitness and fundraising with family and friends. Its aim is to collectively contribute enough kilometres to virtually travel around the world.
Every registration means more money raised and therefore more Childline calls answered. With a call coming through on average every 25 seconds, we need as many people involved and supporting the service as possible.
The challenge is very flexible and can be completed however people like. Options range from logging the steps you do every day, the school-run and lunchtime strolls on weekdays, to bike rides, runs and family activities at weekends.
The NSPCC is the UK's leading children's charity, preventing abuse and helping those affected to recover. They are KPMG’s chosen National Charity until September 2021.
KPMG and the NSPCC share a passionate belief that young people from all backgrounds should have a fair start in life and the power to shape their future rather than letting it be determined by circumstances outside their control.
Our fundraising support is focussed on supporting one of the NSPCC’s key services, Childline. Childline is the NSPCC’s 24/7 counselling service that children and young people can contact whatever the difficulty they’re facing, whenever they’re feeling worried.
£4 could pay for one of the NSPCC’s trained volunteer counsellors to answer a child’s call for help.
£27 could pay for a Childline supervisor for one hour, supporting the NSPCC volunteer counsellors.
£30,000 could pay to run Childline for one day.
