Childline

We are delighted to have the NSPCC's Childline service as the official beneficiary for Drive-It Day. Every day over 800 children and young people reach out to speak to Childline, with worries about their mental health, education and isolation, so it's vital we show our support for children during this particularly challenging time. 

Up and down the UK, classic car and bike enthusiasts will be taking part on 21 April 2024 and raising money for this important cause. Sir Peter Wanless CEO of NSPCC says  “Childline is a crucial service on which young people can rely, day or night, whatever problems or dangers they are facing, and we thank you for your support”

To help raise awareness you can help by posting photos of your car/plate and friends on social media with the hashtag #driveitdaychiddingstonecastle and #driveitdaychildline
