PEOPLE in Huddersfield are being urged to mark Volunteer Week by volunteering to help end cruelty to children.
The NSPCC welcomed new support from anyone who would like to make a difference to the lives of children.
Volunteer Week runs from June 1 to 7.
One NSPCC supporter said: "I cannot lie in bed at night and think that children are being abused. It horrifies me. I have to try to do something about it."
Deborah Vickerstaff, head of community appeals for the NSPCC in the North, said: "The dedication and commitment of our volunteers is amazing and we would like to thank them all for their continued support. They are the lifeblood of the NSPCC.
"Unfortunately it is becoming increasingly difficult to engage new people in local fundraising activities.
"Many people today juggle a career and a family – so it's hard for them to see how they could possibly fit anything else in.
"But no matter how much, or little, time and effort people are able to put in, it all counts."
