Girlguiding and BBC Children in Need have come together to celebrate Pudsey’s 40th year by asking people to  ‘Act Your Age’

Whether that’s a six-year-old Rainbow climbing the equivalent number of steps up to Big Ben in six days, an eight-year-old Brownie undertaking eight minutes of sponsored keepy-uppies, or a 13-year-old unit collectively taking on a virtual half marathon, Girlguiding is encouraging its nearly half a million members to take their age and do something good with it. The money raised through the partnership between BBC Children in Need and Girlguiding will be split equally between the two organisations and will help to make a difference to young live across the UK.

To support the campaign, Girlguiding have created a special Pudsey Badge, which is available to buy here!  The badge has been designed to represent both charities and their mission and commitment to supporting children and young people in the UK. It is available for anyone to buy and add their support.

 

Girls all over the UK will join former Guide and BBC presenter Kate Silverton; Girlguiding Ambassador and adventurer, Anna McNuff, Baroness Tanni Grey-Thomson and England lionesses Rachel Daly and Millie Bright to take on an Act Your Age challenge.

To set up your own online fundraising page or donate, please go to the BBC Children in Need and Girlguiding  JustGiving page  All the resources you need to get started are here and the special Girlguiding Pudsey Badge is available to purchase from Girlguiding’s website or through local Girlguiding units and will cost £1.50 with profits to be split between BBC Children in Need and Girlguiding.

The money raised through the partnership between BBC Children in Need and Girlguiding will be split equally between the two organisations and will go on to make a difference to young lives across the UK.  BBC Children in Need is a registered charity 802052 in England and Wales and SC039557 in Scotland.
