Children in Need have announced that their latest appeal has raised almost £50 million - and Round Table have played their part.
BBC Children in Need has announced the final total for its latest Appeal, raising a phenomenal £49.1 million. Every single penny raised will go towards projects helping disadvantaged children and young people here in the UK.
Members of Round Table Great Britain and Ireland across the UK fundraise for Children in Need every year. In a recent survey conducted by the association for young men aged 18-45, it was revealed that Children In Need was one of the main benefactors of the associations fundraising power.
BBC Children in Need is able to support over 2,500 projects making a real difference to young lives. In the last year alone the Charity has been able to make a positive difference to 480,000 young lives, from Shetland to the Channel Islands.
Speaking of the total Sir Terry Wogan, Life President of BBC Children in Need said: “It’s been another fantastic year, with another fantastic total. On behalf of everyone at the Charity and the projects we support, I’d like to say a heartfelt thank you. Your generosity makes it all possible.”
Chief Executive for BBC Children in Need, David Ramsden, added: “Once again the Great British public have done themselves proud. This is a tremendous result and will allow us to continue our vital work to help benefit disadvantaged young lives. Last year alone we helped change the lives of some 480,000 children and young people, and couldn’t have done so without your support.”
