Derby County are pleased to announce that the club's partnership with the UK’s leading children’s charity, the NSPCC, has been extended.

The two organisations have been working in partnership since 2022, when the NSPCC logo was added to the front of the Rams’ shirts for the 2022/23 season.

Since then, the club has continued to support the NSPCC through other fundraising and awareness initiatives. Fans may have seen NSPCC adverts on big screens and in the programmes on match days, with NSPCC Chief Executive Officer Peter Wanless visiting the club in February.

Throughout the 2023/24 season, the club was pleased to have raised and donated another £10,000 to the charity, which will be invested in the NSPCC Schools Service in Derbyshire.

Over the last year, the NSPCC has delivered its 'Speak out Stay safe' programme to more than 21,800 children across 124 schools in Derby and Derbyshire.

Caroline Morgan, NSPCC Supporter Fundraising Manager (Midlands), said: “It has been a joy to work with Derby County Football Club for the past two seasons and we were so happy when they reached out to us and said they had chosen us again. The club and NSPCC have built a great partnership, with the club taking NSPCC to their hearts and helping not just by fundraising but with our local work too.

“We would like to thank all at Derby County for their continued support and ask all the fans to get behind NSPCC. We look forward to seeing you for the 2024/25 season and, of course, many congratulations on promotion.”

Stephen Pearce, Chief Executive Officer, at Derby County, added: "Over the past two seasons it has been fantastic to build such a great relationship with such an important national charity.

“We look forward to continuing to support their campaigns and raising awareness around childhood safety and safeguarding, which is of integral importance to us as a football club with such a presence in our local community.”

The club looks forward to supporting the NSPCC for a further season, with fans having the option to donate directly to the charity when making ticket purchases or shopping in-store at the DCFCMegastore.

Childhood Day on Friday 7th June is the NSPCC’s flagship fundraising event where families, friends, colleagues, schools and organisations celebrate the day by organising events to raise essential funds for the NSPCC and Childline.

People can also join in by taking part in the Childhood Day Mile - whether participants walk it, cycle it, skip or bounce it, their sponsorship will help support the charity’s vital work.

There are also special Childhood Day resources available for schools, nurseries, and childcare groups on the NSPCC website.
