Calls to this LGBT+ helpline are now powered by sunshine

Thanks to 10:10 supporters, LGBT+ helpline Switchboard has gone solar!

Last year, hundreds of you chipped in to our fundraiser to install solar panels on community buildings around the country. We raised £26,000, and at last the panels are going up.

Four solar panels now sit proudly on the roof of Switchboard's call centre in north London. The panels will help fight climate change (of course) and the money they save on their energy bills can be put right back into their great work.

Switchboard receives 30,000 calls everyday and their volunteers offer a listening ear, and chat about everything from sexual health to coming out to the nearest LGBT+ bar.

There are more installs to come - watch this space!
