British footballing legend, Ian Wright has teamed up with Cartoon Network and Childline, the leading UK helpline for children and young people to provide immediate advice and support for those in need.
Wright said: “I teamed up with Cartoon Network and Childline to launch CN Buddy Network this year because I don’t believe that bullying at any stage of your life is acceptable.
“I think it’s important that children have somewhere to go so they don’t have to suffer in silence.
“I remember getting bullied back when I was new on the football scene, I was only 22 and people were intimidated by that. My advice to kids is to speak up against bullying’ that’s the first step to showing others you’ve got their back.”
