Children in Need are one of our main annual fundraisers. This year we did a ‘Hair for the Bear’; this painfully included two men and lots of wax strips. We did a Fancy Dress competition along with the BBC Duck Race. The main fundraiser was a raffle to win 1 Day Annual Leave! As you can imagine, lots took part! MSL even had Safe Partners helping us raise money for Children in Need which helped us raise over £1,200.
BBC Children in Need is the BBC’s UK corporate charity. Thanks to the support of the public, they’re able to make a real difference to the lives of children all across the UK. Their vision is that every child in the UK has a childhood which is safe, happy, and secure and allows them the chance to reach their potential. The charity is currently supporting 2,400 projects all 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. They raise and help many children every single year. Below is a link to their website to find out more:
