International Volunteer Day 2016

To all of our amazing Volunteers,

On behalf of the Board of Trustees, I would like to say a special thank you for the voluntary hours you give to Childline Gibraltar. On International Volunteer Day, we celebrate the power and potential of volunteerism and we know that our charity would not function without the contribution that you all make in your own way.

In the last year alone, we have helped almost 400 people via our Helpline, almost 50 juveniles via our Appropriate Adult service and we’ve reached more than 2,000 young people through our various educational projects. All of this takes tremendous efforts and team work and it is thanks to all of you that we have been able to have such an impact within the Gibraltar community.

The other week, a young girl approached our Chocolate Tombola stall at the Convent Christmas Fair and bought a number of tickets with her pocket money. When the volunteers on the stall joked with her that she wouldn’t have any money left if she kept buying tickets, her response was that Childline had helped so many of her friends, so she wanted to help Childine. This is the reality we face – many children have come to depend on our services and we continue to strive to be there for anyone who needs us. Thanks to you, we are able to develop and expand knowing that we are supported by a passionate, dedicated group of individuals who share our vision to end cruelty to children in Gibraltar.

I take this opportunity to wish you and your families well over the holiday season and I look forward to meeting you all during 2017.

Thank you once again for making that difference.

Warmest regards

Jo Abergel
