Trent Building to go green for NSPCC Children’s Walk

December 14th, 2021

On Tuesday 21 December 2021, hundreds of people will walk 5k to support the NSPCC, and landmarks across the UK including our own iconic Trent Building will show their support by lighting up in the charity’s trademark green colour.

It’s the longest night of the year. But for children experiencing abuse or neglect, every night can feel that long. To raise funds for those who need it, the NSPCC will be asking participants to walk 5k in their local area, with sponsorship from friends and family.

The university’s Trent Building will be joining a host of other iconic Nottingham buildings going green, including the Theatre Royal, Nottingham City House and the Cornerhouse.

If you’re taking part in Walk for Children and happen to pass one of these landmarks, share it on social media using #WalkforChildren.

How you can take part

1. Sign up for £10

Sign up and the charity will send you an NSPCC t-shirt in the post to wear on your walk! Choose your own 5k route and who want to take part with.

2. Raise money

Set your target! £100 could pay to answer 25 calls for help from children to Childline. If you raise £100, the NSPCC will send you an exclusive hot drinks cup to take on your walk.

3. Walk 5k

On 21 December, or another day that suits you, walk your own 5k route! You could plan your route around local Christmas lights, or end up in a pub for a well-deserved drink.

Since Walk for Children started in 2020 more than 1,139 people have taken part, 5,695km have been walked and over £160,000 has been raised.
