Natalie Dormer NSPCC’s Ambassador for Childline commented: “I’ve seen first-hand what a shift is like for a Childline counsellor. Some of the calls that came in completely sideswiped me and it reinforced how important Childline is for many young people. That’s why I do everything I can to support the charity, and why I’m making this personal donation. It is vital that Childline can continue to be here for young people, now more than ever before.”

Michael McGrath, NSPCC Head of Partnerships said: “I’d like to thank Natalie for her amazing support. The pandemic has posed so many challenges, especially for children subjected to abuse or neglect. When the world is uncertain, when home may not be a safe place, no child should be left to cope alone. The money raised from this auction will help us still be here for children.”

A big thank you to Natalie Dormer for donating the Santa Muerte head, Penny Dreadful: City of Angels has a dedicated fanbase, so we expect to see another fantastic result in our Entertainment Memorabilia Live Auction on December 1st & 2nd 2020.”
