Since the first major Appeal, BBC Children in Need has raised over £790 million and changed the lives of thousands of young people for the better. So we're delighted to be their first-ever schools partner.
We've joined forces with BBC Children in Need to help millions of children in thousands of schools across Britain to have fun, learn new skills and raise even more money. We're supporting them to take the lead with their own fundraising ideas – and with our free fundraising kits, we’re there to lend a hand every step of the way.
Every penny raised for BBC Children in Need goes towards thousands of brilliant projects like these, helping young people all over the country, every day of the year.
If you'd like to donate, it couldn't be easier – and it doesn't have to be a lot of money to make a real difference. We’ll even match every donation given through Pennies for Pudsey up to the first £500,000 in 2015. Just click below to give now.
Alesha Dixon visits the KPC Youth centre near Cardiff, which provides young people aged 8-25 with a safe environment to get involved in activities, have fun and learn new skills along the way.
With your much-needed support, BBC Children in Need can help fund the centre, which Alesha said, “gives the children the best support structure to learn life skills, to give them ambition and keep them off the streets.”
Your donations could go towards helping children in a diverse area of London to enjoy safe, supervised fun through a range of activities at Howbury Tumblers.
