Star letter: Help us transform lives of most vulnerable children

Have your say

As we celebrate the start of 2015 and look forward to what the new year will bring, could I ask your readers to consider volunteering with Barnardo’s in 2015.

Barnardo’s works with some of the UK’s most disadvantaged children whose families are struggling to make ends meet and who will be facing unimaginable hardship in 2015. We see first hand the difficulties they face, such as homelessness, poverty and abuse. But each year, thanks to vital support from our fundraising volunteers, we manage to transform the lives of some 200,000 children, young people and their families up and down the country.

We need help from people across Yorkshire to make a difference to the lives of these vulnerable children in 2015. With your support we can be there when we are needed most and turn young lives around.

If readers can spare some time to fundraise for Barnardo’s, we are offering a whole host of support to make your fundraising a success. Readers can download packs at

By taking part you will help to raise awareness of those young people who may not have anyone to turn to and help provide funds to ensure Barnardo’s can be there for them instead.

By fundraising for Barnardo’s you’ll be joining an amazing community of people doing extraordinary things to improve the lives of vulnerable and disadvantaged children.

Please help us to transform the lives of Yorkshire’s most vulnerable children and help thousands of families to build a better future. We can’t do it without you.

Thank you for your continued support.

Wishing all your readers a very happy New Year,

Steve Oversby,

Barnardo’s Director in
