The NSPCC cannot end cruelty to children on its own, which is why a partnership with APH is so important. We rely on the generosity and support of individuals and companies, such as APH, for 85% of our income.
London, England (PRWEB) October 24, 2005
During October, Airports Parking and Hotels (APH) will make a donation to The National Society For The Prevention of Cruelty To Children (NSPCC) for every airport, car park and hotel booking made online at http://www.aph.com/NSPCC or via a dedicated telephone number: 0870 733 2147. Additionally, APH employees will be supporting FULL STOP week through various sponsored events.
Nick Caunter, managing director, APH, said "It’s a privilege to be able to support the NSPCC. Our staff are very excited to be involved in this initiative, and together with our customers, we hope to raise a lot of money for the cause. A typical car park booking through http://www.aph.com/NSPCC or 0870 733 2147 means we can make a donation of more than £3 per average booking. Alternatively, if a customer books a hotel and parking package the donation will be around £7.50 each time. We hope to raise thousands of pounds in this way. "
During the campaign, APH will communicate key messages of the ‘Talk ‘til It Stops’ initiative to its customers. APH will also be selling NSPCC FULL STOP badges and new Barney the Dinosaur zip pulls at their sites across the UK.
Working with APH, the NSPCC hopes to spread the message to employees and customers that they can all play a part in helping to end cruelty to children, through raising awareness, raising funds and talking about child abuse til it stops.
Elaine Dodds, head of corporate partnerships, the NSPCC, said "The NSPCC cannot end cruelty to children on its own, which is why a partnership with APH is so important. We rely on the generosity and support of individuals and companies, such as APH, for 85% of our income."

The NSPCC's purpose is to end cruelty to children. Its vision is of a society where all children are loved, valued and able to fulfil their potential. We seek to achieve cultural, social and political change - influencing legislation, policy, practice, attitudes and behaviours for the benefit of children and young people.

Since the launch of the FULL STOP campaign in 1999 the NSPCC has increased its projects and services for children and young people across the country. In the latest phase of the FULL STOP Campaign, the NSPCC is seeking to encourage people to talk about child abuse. The message to the public will be ‘Talk 'til it stops’. The campaign aims to show that by talking about concerns to a neighbour, friend or the NSPCC Helpline, we can work together towards ending cruelty to children.
