Childline Advice: Author Lewis has a personal reason to support Childline

Lewis Pentland

The service is free of charge for youth in the North East and the rest of the United Kingdom, but costs £30,000 per day to run.

So we’re very grateful to all of the people who fundraise to make sure we can be there for the kids whenever they need us.

Parenting vlogger, broadcaster and author Louise Pentland has pledged to one day fund Childline through her #NowIKnow campaign.

Lewis, like many others who fundraise for Childline, we have a personal cause to support.

This year marks the 30th anniversary of the death of Louise’s mother.

Shortly after her death, an adult came into Lewis’s life who abused her emotionally and physically.

Privacy is important to Childline, as it gives children and young people the confidence to contact us when they feel they can’t talk to anyone else.

However, as a young girl, Louise did not know this was the case, and therefore did not feel comfortable contacting us at the time.

But she wants kids to be aware now that this is the case, and for that reason, she and her celebrity friends will be hosting a livestream on YouTube on Thursday, April 21.

During the livestream she will talk about why the charity is so close to her heart, as well as her role as the NSPCC and Childline Ambassador for Childhood, and raising money to support the service.

Calls to the Childline service do not appear on any phone bill, and children can contact our counselors 24 hours a day, seven days a week, every day of the year.

They can also use the Childline website to contact our counselors or talk to other youth on moderated message boards.

Lewis’ support, along with every single member of the public who helps raise vital funds to support the NSPCC and Childline, really makes a difference and we are so grateful for that.

This fundraising helps ensure that our counselors can be there to share as little or as much as possible for children and young people whenever they need us.
