NSPCC community fundraising manager Nadia Whitmore says, “We are delighted to be involved with this fantastic Christmas concert once again.

“The school children from across Edinburgh have been rehearsing to put on an amazing show.

“We would like to thank all of the children and staff who have worked so hard to bring their performances to the people of Edinburgh.

“Funds raised from the concert will go towards the Childline service in Scotland, a vital service for children who have nowhere else to turn, we hope as many people as possible can come along to support this event.”

Children can contact Childline 24 hours a day, 365 days a year and thousands of children from across Scotland contact the free service each year via phone or online.
