Tonight will be the climax of many months of fundraising activities when the annual BBC Children in Need Telethon will showcase some of the amazing fundraising events and groups and individuals who will benefit from the fundraising. Emma said, “I’ve seen many fantastic events locally, in shops, schools, community centres and businesses including this one at Northycote Farm Many more groups and individuals have given their time to help support this fantastic campaign. it is heart-warming that as a country, we are still able to come together to help those most in need and I commend everyone who is getting involved and doing their bit.

“Children in Need has been going since 1980 and has raised an incredible £600 million to date and long may it continue.

“There is still time for you to get involved and you can find more information and resources on the BBC Children in Need website at the following address; .”

Have you a story to share on how you will be supporting Children in Need or have you or your group benefited from the fundraising? If so, I’d like to hear about it. You can email me at:
