The following message was recently received from Sutton branch of the NSPCC (National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children.  As Deputy Mayor in 2011-2, Cllr. Hamish Pollock had the privilege of attending and chairing the AGM of the local NSPCC branch meeting.

Dear Cllr. Pollock

It’s been a little while since our last newsletter.  We’re bringing you some brief details of our local fund-raising and more emphasis on the national work and campaigning of the NSPCC.  Sutton NSPCC volunteers manned a stall at the Cheam Charter Fair which raised some valuable funds.  We would like to thank all those people who took the time to stop at our stall, buy something or play the tombolas and for supporting the Fair in general.  It was a good day.  You can see more about this on our website

The past week has seen the magnificent Diamond Jubilee celebrations.  The NSPCC would like to congratulate the Queen during this landmark week, so we’ve been joining the nation and getting into Jubilee fever.

The Queen has been the patron of the NSPCC for 60 years and we’ve been digging through the archives to see what gems we can uncover.  Please click here to see some vintage film, and read more.
