Jersey landmarks are lighting up green in support of NSPCC's Christmas campaign, 'Light for Every Childhood'.

The aim of the campaign is to raise awareness of the nature and scale of neglect and shining a light on those children who may be suffering from abuse.

Fort Regent, Trinity Manor and The Ports of Jersey are among the many landmarks glowing green and flying NSPCC Jersey flags.

NSPCC Jersey says it hopes the campaign will "really shine a light on child neglect this Christmas, and help enable adults to act on behalf of our children and young people to get help should they ever need it".

We are absolutely thrilled that these iconic buildings will be lighting-up green, and raising NSPCC Jersey flags, in a wonderful demonstration of their support for our NSPCC Christmas campaign, 'Light for Every Childhood'.

– Nicola Santos Costa, Fundraising Chair for NSPCC Jersey

NSPCC Jersey is saying to islanders 'Get Your Sparkle On' by wearing something sparkly to work or having a sparkly bake or craft sale to fundraise this Christmas.

The charity runs preventative programmes for primary school children, supports children who have been sexually abused and provides a service for expectant parents who may be experiencing low mood or anxiety.

Children can call the charity's free Childline service to speak to trained counsellors at anytime on 0800 1111 or via childline.org.uk.
