Get on the
board for youngsters in need

Have your say

DUST off your favourite board game and get playing in support of vulnerable youngsters.

That’s the message from Fareham mum Claire Hall, who is calling for people to join her and take part in a Really Big Board Game Day to benefit the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children.

Claire, 35, said she would be playing Monopoly for the May 15 appeal.

‘My playing piece was the boot and I enjoyed moving around the board, building my empire,’ she said.

‘There was order to it and you gradually worked your way up the property ladder to win.’

Participants are asked to donate £5 to the NSPCC to help children recover from abuse and neglect.

Claire said: ‘It’s all in aid of the charity’s work to use play therapy to rebuild the lives of vulnerable children, as well as encouraging people to put down their electronic devices and have fun together.’

Those interested in taking part can register at nspcc.org.uk/bigboardgame.
