Birmingham to host NSPCC flagship family fun day

Birmingham’s Centenary Square will play host to bhangra music, games and Pantosaurus in aid of the NSPCC’s Childhood Day.

Childhood Day is the NSPCC’s flagship day of fundraising, where children and adults are encouraged to walk, hop, skip or wheel a mile to help raise money for children across the UK.

The Birmingham Childhood Day event will take place on Saturday 10 June from midday, and  all families are welcome to join in the free entertainment and activities. 

Amanda Synnott, Community Fundraising Manager for Birmingham, said:

“We are thrilled to be bringing free family fun and live entertainment to Birmingham’s Centenary Square. Not only will we have music and games but activities such as face painting and a chance to meet the NSPCC’s friendly dinosaur – Pantosaurus.

“There will also be opportunities for people to offer their support for the NSPCC and Childline and to find out more about the work we do for children and families in Birmingham and the West Midlands. Come along, have fun and help us make a difference.”

Next week’s event will also receive support from Birmingham City Council as it will feature in the One Hundred Brilliant Days campaign to celebrate the city’s children and young people.

Both Childline and the NSPCC Helpline can be found in The CIBA building on Hagley Road. Birmingham Childline celebrated its 20th anniversary last year.

The NSPCC in Birmingham needs new volunteers to help keep children safe. To be a volunteer is an opportunity to learn new skills, be a part of a friendly team of like-minded people and to make a huge difference to the lives of children and young people.
