NSPCC message gets green light in Cambridge
Cambridge’s Guildhall and King’s College turned green to support the NSPCC’s Light for Every Childhood campaign.
The change in colour was arranged on Thursday, November 28, with members of the charity’s staff present at both landmarks.
The Guildhall, in association with Cambridge BID, kept its lights green until last Monday (December 2), while King’s was green for one night only.
This year’s campaign also coincides with Get Your Sparkle On on December 11, when the charity is encouraging people to add some sparkle to their baking, clothing or event to fundraise for the charity.
Sarah Lambley, community fundraising manager for the NSPCC, said: “We’re extremely grateful that Cambridge BID turned green to help raise awareness of the appeal.
“This Christmas we’re adding a festive glow to iconic buildings to celebrate people in the East of England getting their sparkle on for the NSPCC – all to help bring light to every childhood.”
