Rise & Shine for Childline

Host your own Childline Breakfast at home, in your school, club, crèche, or company and support Ireland’s only 24hr listening service for children and teenagers nationwide.

We are asking parents and guardians, teachers and caregivers, employees and employers to sit down together and have breakfast while enjoying some tasty McCambridge bread, all in aid of Childline.

Talking helps and at Childline we listen to children who simply need someone to talk to. We are there for them 24 hours a day, seven days a week. And you can help us to continue to be there with your own breakfast gathering. 

So, choose a day in May to Rise and Shine for Childline.
