By raising money for BBC Children in Need, you’ll be helping to support children and young people facing disadvantages of all kinds across all corners of the UK.  

Tell your friends and family about your plans, and ask them to sponsor or make a donation for completing your activity.  

Setting up a fundraising page is the easiest way for you and your supporters to collect donations, and it makes paying in your hard-money easy.  

Set your challenge and join in on Friday 30 April to Bank Holiday Monday 3 May, the weekend that would have been Captain Sir Tom’s birthday.
