Michelle Thompson, who is a Divisional Communications Officer for the NSPCC sent Vital Manchester City the following.

The Man City team are supporting the NSPCC's Save the Number campaign to show that child protection is everyone's responsibility. Players, supporters and the people of Manchester are being asked to save the NSPCC help line number: 0808 800 5000 in their phones. So, if they ever have any worries or concerns about the welfare of any child or young person they can call in confidence and get advice. Not all children can speak out for themselves.

What is the NSPCC help line?

The NSPCC help line is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year. Help line staff are there to offer advice and support to adults concerned about a child, and to assist the child. When you call, you don't have to tell us who you are, you can remain anonymous if you want. The most important thing is to call.

NSPCC help line fact file

You can contact the NSPCC help line 24 hours a day, for free and anonymously on 0808 800 5000 or . In 2008/09 the help line counselled 29,346 callers with worries about a child's safety or well-being.

The NSPCC help line is an important source of information for local children's services teams. They estimate that one in three serious referrals they make to local authorities are about children they didn't already know about. Whatever your concern, we're here to offer help, advice and support.

The NSPCC help line provides a service for everyone, no matter their background or ability. Some advisors speak multiple languages including Welsh. Deaf and hard of hearing can email, or use the British. Sign Video service on 020 8463 1148.

Nice to see Bridge supporting it, after all, he doesn't want to give too much to old Peroncel to look after his child, why should he care about other children.
