Supporter Stories

Our supporters explain in their own words why Barnardos is one of their chosen charities:

“Barnardos helped my granddaughter… they saw something there that nobody else saw. They have guided her and helped her deal with situations in her life. She will turn into a fantastic young lady thanks to the calming influence and help that Barnardos have given her. It’s a great cause, it’s great work that you do. Having witnessed first-hand the positive effects of your work I see it befitting to give a little bit when it does so much more. Barnardos are making a real difference.”

“Because it's all about the children. They need a good start in life. Some children and families need a helping hand.”

“The clothes we wear and the cars we drive, none of it will matter a 100 years from now. But being important in a child's life can make the world a better place for good.”

“I have two young kids myself who are healthy and well cared for, wanted to give a little back to kids who may not be as lucky.”

“A home based domestic charity which supports and advocates for children.”

“I really believe in the work of Barnardos. I believe the money is going to help these children and it means a lot to me.”

“Because every child deserves to feel safe and be able to learn and improve their own fate. I really hope these children will be on a path to a bright future. Every child deserves one.”

“As a mother of five and a teacher I can’t bear to see children suffer through neglect, cruelty or injustice. That’s why I support the work of Barnardos.”

“I support Barnardos because all kids deserve a happy childhood to remember.”

“Because children matter.”

“In this day and age, no child should suffer.”

“It’s nice to think there may be a better world ahead for those without.”
