Sophie, Countess of Wessex continues her volunteering work amid the pandemic. The Countess met with staff of Childline, a counselling service for children and young people up to their 19th birthday provided by the National Society for Prevention of Cruelty Children (NSPCC).
The meeting took place at NSPCC’s headquarters in London on June 17, 2020.
