We're looking forward to a year of exciting and energetic fundraising with hopes that, between all of us, colleagues, partners and supporters, we can reach a target of £10,000. This amount would be enough to cover the cost of empowering 2,500 children to know how to keep themselves safe and protect themselves from abuse.
At Banner, we've become more familiar with the NSPCC since we started supplying its schools service and the wider organisation.
This support has included providing print and fulfilment for the Speak Out Stay Safe initiatives. This sees specially trained Speak Out Stay Safe staff and volunteers visit primary schools across the country to give children the knowledge they need to stay safe from harm and to speak out if they're worried.
We've been incredibly impressed and inspired by the NSPCC's mission to fight for every childhood and it's made our decision to choose this charity an easy one.
Colleagues at Banner will be able to get involved in lots of different ways, from dress down days to marathons and cake sales to competitions.
There will also be a host of events to participate in, with charity runs, cycles, treks and challenges including the Cotswold Way Challenge, the 5K Big Fun Run and the Paris to London to Paris Bike Ride Tour de France Special.

Here's to a fun-filled year of helping to make a difference for children across the country.
The NSPCC's work
The NSPCC is an independent charity, which receives around 90% of its fundraising from supporters. Every pound raised and every penny received helps to make sure it can reach more children.
During 2017/18 the charity spent over £93 million on service and activities to make children and young people safer. This included working with children and families, helplines, its schools service and its child protection and awareness campaigns such as PANTS.
The NSPCC's Childline service provides a safe, confidential place for children with no one else to turn to, whatever their worry, whenever they need help. Children can contact Childline on 0800 1111, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
The free NSPCC helpline provides adults with a place they can get advice and support, share their concerns about a child or get general information about child protection. Adults can contact the helpline on 0800 800 5000, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
