The NSPCC Really Big Board Game Day

The lovely people at the NSPCC (National Society for the Protection of Cruelty to Children)have recently contacted me to ask for help publicising an event for them. Considering the work that they do, there was no way that I would say no.

The event is the Really Big Board Game Day on 15th May, and this is what the NSPCC has to say about it….

Everyone has their favourite board game. But whether you’re mad about Monopoly or crazy about Kerplunk you can play a part in our exciting new event – The Really Big Board Game Day.

On Friday 15 May, we want workplaces, schools, community centres, pubs and homes to be filled with the sounds of shakers, tiles and laughter. Once you’ve registered, getting started is child’s play:

  1. Grab a stack of your favourite board games.
  2. Clear a few tables.
  3. Let the games begin.

And with a suggested donation of £5 for everyone who takes part in your really Big Board Game event, you’ll be helping us to rebuild the lives of vulnerable children through our play therapy work.

We love board games in our house, even if Si and I do get a little competitive at times! There’s nothing better than sitting around with my little family playing games when it’s raining outside. I have to wait til it’s raining though, as my boys love to play outside as much as possible.

If you visit the NSPCC website you can find more information on ways to send your donations, how to sign up, and more information on what the money you raise will be used for. Play Therapy can really help children who have been abused and neglected to start to recover.

Even if you only play a board game with your own little family, and send in £5, it all adds up, and more children can be helped. I have no idea how anyone could ever hurt a child, and I really hope a lot of people get behind this campaign, and help the NSPCC to put a smile back on the faces of the children who really need their and our help.

I will definitely be playing a game on the day with my own family, and making a donation, let me know if you do!

      My boys love Monopoly, my eldest sister always used to lose and then strop when we were kids though, and throw the board at your head! Board games were dangerous for me growing up ;) Amazing cause though, so glad could help out with it! The photo of my boys will be in a local paper next week as well promoting it! #proudmum

    This is a great idea and such a good cause! I’m sure we can figure out a way to get involved, even if Elsa is a bit little for board games.

      Brilliant, the work they do is amazing – it’s just very sad that they need to do it!
