All this week we're looking at the charities that will benefit from your donations this year. Beat Bullying is one of them. It provides an online mentoring service for any child or young person who is being bullied.

It also provides educational programmes for schools to tackle the problem at grass roots level.

Being bullied is every child's nightmare, and a parent's worse fear. It can ruin childhoods and leave lasting scars. Charlotte who's 15 and from Coventry was bullied all the way through primary school and into secondary school. It wasn't until she discovered the Beat Bullying website that she was able to get counselling and deal with the bullies.
