From Pudsey Yoga, fancy dress, bake sales or joining the Big Morning Move, we want to say a huge, massive, enormous THANK YOU to all the schools and nurseries that raised money for BBC Children in Need this year!
Thanks to you, the total raised by schools and nurseries is set to reach £5.25million! Every single donation, no matter how big or small, will make a huge difference to children who need our help most. If you’ve not paid in already, you can pay in now.
