Children in Need

For over half a century BBC Children in Need have been raising money for young people in the UK that need help. Children in Need provide grants to projects in the UK which focus on children and young people who are disadvantaged. They currently support over 3,000 local charities and projects in communities across the UK. The projects they fund help children facing a range of disadvantages for example poverty and deprivation; children who have been the victims of abuse or neglect or disabled young people.We know things have been difficult this year, but together, we really can make a huge difference in a time when it’s needed most. Findings show that right now the coronavirus pandemic is having a huge impact on the mental health and wellbeing of UK children, and for those who were already facing disadvantages, life has become incredibly difficult. It has never been more important that we help fund life changing projects and charities, providing crucial services for vulnerable children and young people through this crisis. The money raised helps support thousands of children and young people and helps change lives.

On Friday 13th November we asked children to ‘Wear Your Spots to Raise Lots’ and make a donation of £1 to this worthwhile charity. We also sold duck tickets for the BBC Children in Need Duck Race for £1 each. There were 20 ducks competing so we had several copies of the sweepstake poster in every classroom allowing children to pay £1 and choose a winner. The race was shown live at 1pm and all those who won took home a Spotty Rubber Duck for their own bath! The winning duck was Duckman and Bobbin. We raised an amazing total of £282.75. Great job everyone :)
