The Atlantic Odyssey Team will be raising money for Have a Heart’s Childline Appeal. Have a Heart is the charity of the Heart radio network, and aims to improve the lives of children living in the communities to which Heart broadcasts. The Atlantic Odyssey is going to support ChildLine – the free phone and online service, offering support and advice for any child who has nowhere else to turn. Take a look at our page: www.heart.co.uk/have-a-heart/atlantic-odyssey-2012
Trained volunteers are ready to help young people in need at any time, day or night, 365 days a year. Since its launch 25 years ago, ChildLine has counselled 2.6 million children – that’s one child every five minutes. Sadly almost 20,200 of these were children ready to take their own lives.
