BBC Children in Need (tomorrow!)

Every year, the BBC Children in Need hosts a live, televised Appeal Show, supported by countless celebrities. The Appeal show is a whole evening of entertainment on BBC One with celebrities singing, dancing, and doing all sorts of crazy things to help raise money. Well, the time is here again!

BBC’s Children in Need Appeal Show starts tomorrow night (Friday, 16th November 2012) at 7.30pm on BBC 1. Tune in for a night of fantastic entertainment and a great sense of community and making a difference together!

Here are some sneak previews  and the line up for the evening!

What We Do
BBC Children in Need is the BBC's UK corporate charity. Thanks to the support of the public, we're able to make a real difference to the lives of children all across the UK. How do we do this? Read all about our vision and how we operate below.
Our Vision
Our vision is that every child in the UK has a childhood which is:
               Happy and Secure
               Allows them the chance to reach their potential

What We Do

We provide grants to projects in the UK which focus on children and young people who are disadvantaged. We are local to people in all corners of the UK and support small and large organisations which empower children and extend their life choices.
Our grant programmes are open all year round for applications, with a focus on allocating the money to deserving projects 4 times a year. To find out more about our grant programmes, to apply for a grant or to hear how some children's lives have been changed for the better, visit 'Change Lives'

Where Your Money Goes
Every penny from the money you raise or donate will go towards helping disadvantaged children and young people right here in the UK. We are able to make this promise because we use investment income and Gift Aid to cover all running costs, meaning that you can be sure your money makes a real difference.

You can support this cause by:
o   Watching the televised Appeal Show and calling to make a donation
o   Donating online
o   Buying a Designer Pudsey online on the official auction site
o   Downloading Girls Aloud’s new single Something New – 10p of each download goes towards Children in Need; 50p for each single sold in shops)
