Adding up support for NSPCC

METRO Mayor Dan Norris visited Cabot Primary School in St Paul’s to take part in the NSPCC’s Number Day.

The annual event aims to encourage children to take part in maths while also helping the children’s charity to raise funds for its activities, such as its schools service which sees staff and volunteers delivering workshops that aim to protect children from sexual abuse.

Mr Norris, mayor of the West of England said he was keen to support Number Day having worked as a child protection officer before entering politics.

Tara Wright, from the NSPCC, said: “Number Day is a fantastic time for all children to explore their love of maths. It’s always great to see how the day is celebrated in Bristol and South Gloucestershire.”
