Her Royal Highness will visit the NSPCC's Gower Centre on Stopford Road a patron of the children's charity on Tuesday 24th March.

“We are thrilled to welcome our charity’s Royal Patron HRH Countess of Wessex to the Gower Centre to meet the volunteers, staff and supporters who make the crucial work we do possible. 

The Countess will help us thank them and our fundraisers, who raise money that enables us to offer direct services and free safeguarding assemblies in Jersey primary schools. 

NSPCC Jersey supports children who have been sexually abused to rebuild their lives, and helps expectant parents to manage anxieties. The Countess will hear from Islanders who benefit from these direct services during her visit.”  - Jacky Moon, Service Centre Manager
