Children In Need 2020

With the world going through a pandemic, to hear Children In Need is still going ahead is brilliant. The past few weeks we've seen some amazing fundraising activities from Matt Baker and his team with The Rickshaw Challenge, DIY SOS with The Big Build and Joe Wicks with his 24 hour P.E. Challenge. 

Everyone has had to adapt to new covid measures which have been ever changing. There is something fundamentally British about the Keep Calm & Carry On attitude people have had to raise money and awareness to benefit those who need help and support.

I know this has been a tough year for many and although this is an awareness post with ways you can donate, you can just raise awareness. It costs nothing. So please, repost, share and/or retweet from the official BBC Children In Need accounts which you can find below.

What Is Children In Need?

Children In Need is a British Charity that raises money for lots of projects over the UK to help disadvantaged children. Originally a radio broadcast, since 1980 the appeal has been on the BBC in a telethon format. Then in 1985 the telethon introduced Pudsey. Pudsey is the cuddly mascot for the charity and will often appear on the merchandise and be on stage / in the audience on the appeal night.

When Is Children In Need?

Tonight on BBC One at 7pm.

What Does The Money Do?

It goes to fund local charities and projects who help support children affected by poverty, disability, illness, distress and/or trauma. They also tackle issues such as mental health and wellbeing, violence, child sexual exploitation, hunger and social injustice.
