On Sunday 21 April 2013, Graeme Fraser, a partner in our Family Department, ran the Virgin London Marathon to raise funds for the NSPCC.

The NSPCC’s purpose is to end cruelty to children. Their landmark 2011 prevalence report looking at abuse over the last thirty years found that nearly one million secondary school children have experienced serious abuse and neglect. There are currently over 50,000 children on the child protection register, and it is known that there are many, many more who are suffering. On average, every week in England and Wales at least one child is killed at the hands of another person.

The NSPCC’s vision is of a society where all children are loved, valued and able to fulfil their potential. They seek to achieve cultural, social and political change – influencing legislation, policy, practice, attitudes and behaviours and delivering services for the benefit of all children and young people across the UK and Channel Islands.

ChildLine and the NSPCC Helpline are available for thousands of children and young people, but many more need help. The NSPCC relies on the generosity of the general public to continue their work.

Graeme completed the course in a very impressive time of 3 hours and 52 minutes. For information about Graeme Fraser’s fundraising, please see here.
