Ulverston’s Hoad Monument will join dozens of UK landmarks in support of the NSPCC.

On Monday, the monument will be lighting up green for the charity’s Christmas appeal.

It will join sites across the UK, including Tyne Bridge that connects Newcastle and Gateshead.

By lighting up sites 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”

Sandra Jones, Community Fundraising Manager for the NSPCC, said: “It’s really terrific to see the magnificent Ulverston’s Hoad Monument go green for us this year, it really looks amazing and serves as a reminder that the NSPCC is here for children.

“For thousands of children, being stuck at home for the holidays is a terrifying thought – and they urgently need their voices to be heard.

“We’re here for children this Christmas, protecting them from abuse and supporting them when they feel like they have nowhere else to turn.

“On the phone, online, wherever they need us to be, the NSPCC is here.”
