This year Childline has called on the community to join in the #8008 challenge to raise awareness about their freephone Helpline number 8008. The Convent joined in on Wednesday by baking – and eating! – a cake displaying the Helpline number.

His Excellency the Governor, Lt Gen Edward Davis, was accompanied by his Worship the Mayor, The Hon Adolfo Canepa and the Convent Staff.

His Excellency said, “It is really important to raise awareness and generate support for Childline’s role and contribution in the well-being of our community. I am deeply impressed by their dedication and resourcefulness in the welfare of Gibraltar’s children.
