A MONUMENT is joining dozens of landmarks across the UK in lighting up green for a children's charity.

Ulverston’s Hoad Monument will follow suit with dozens of landmarks by lighting up green on Monday in support of the NSPCC’s Christmas appeal. By lighting up sites across the country in the run-up to the festive period, the NSPCC wants to remind the public that the children’s charity is here for children, whenever they need support. Town Mayor Cllr Sharon Webster said: “We are delighted to be supporting the NSPCC in their Christmas Appeal and wish them every success.” "Christmas can be a difficult time for children suffering abuse, neglect and poor mental health, and the impact of the Coronavirus looks likely to put even more children at risk this year."
