A Bradford-based company has made donations of more than £10,000 to the NSPCC, to help the charity support children and young people across the country.

Driver Hire, which has offices around the UK, hope the company-wide donations will inspire other organisations to find out how they can also support good causes like the NSPCC.

Richard Owen-Hughes is group marketing director for Driver Hire and said: “For the last two Christmases, we have been honoured to donate £5,000 to the NSPCC, to support its work with children across the region, and its Childline base here in Yorkshire.

“We also held fundraising events during the charity’s Childhood Day campaign in the summer, because all our staff were keen to support such a good cause. We know that sustained fundraising is better than a one-off donation, and we know the funds will be used to help some of the most vulnerable young people in society.”

The amount donated by Driver Hire could help the NSPCC’s Childline counsellors in Yorkshire answer 2,500 contacts from children and young people across the UK who need help or support in their darkest hours.
