An Ammanford teenager is taking on a big challenge to raise funds for a charity close to her heart.

Tayler Walters, 18, has chosen to take part in the London Marathon on Sunday, April 26 2020 as part of team NSPCC as she feels it’s time she gave back to those who helped her overcome her traumatising childhood.

She is hoping to raise a minimum of £2,5000 for the NSPCC (National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children) which is a charity that campaigns and works in child protection in the United Kingdom and the Channel Islands.

Tayler said: “I wish no other child to go through what my sister and I went through

“This can only be achieved with your help.

“It’s easy to say "who knows what happens behind closed doors" although, it’s harder to actually speak about what happened behind those closed doors.

“I can happily say now that I am in contact with my mother and siblings and are am happier than ever. There is a light at the end of the tunnel.”

Tayler has set-up a fundraising page which has already attached the attention of friends and family who have made a donation along with a supportive comment.

Tayler is off to university in September and passed her A-level exams with great results and has recently completed a half marathon on Pendine beach which she completed in good time.

The NSPCC lobbies the government on issues relating to child welfare, and creates campaigns for the general public, with the intention of raising awareness of child protection issues.

It also operates both a helpline on 0808 800 5000, for anyone concerned about a child, and ChildLine offering support to children themselves.

Childline became a part of the NSPCC in 2006. In addition to the telephone helplines, NSPCC provides an online counselling service for children & young people at ChildLine.
