A message from Christopher Bush, National Community Officer for Round Table Great Britain & Ireland:
Every year, teams of loyal volunteers don their Pudsey ears and hit the London tube stations to collect donations for BBC Children in Need. In June, Children in Need will be booking stations up and down London Underground lines and we are calling on Tablers to help.
BBC Children in Need’s vision is that every child in the UK has a safe, happy and secure childhood and the chance to reach their potential. The charity will realise this vision by supporting, promoting and publicising work that addresses the challenges that children and young people face and work that builds their skills and resilience.
BBC Children in Need is currently supporting over 2,500 projects in communities across the UK that are helping children and young people facing a range of disadvantages such as living in poverty, being disabled or ill, or experiencing distress, neglect or trauma.
Round Table can make a difference. In June, Children in Need will be booking stations up and down London Underground lines and we are calling on Tablers to help.
If you can volunteer to collect donations on the 15th or 16th November, for two hours or two days, please send your contact details and the name of the station you would like to book to firstname.lastname@example.org. Last year £2000 was raised at one station!
If you’re not located near London but still want to help raise money for BBC Children in Need, ASDA have now agreed to allow CiN collections to happen at their nationwide stores. They would really appreciate your time to encourage and collect donations. Please contact me to register your interest and secure your donation space. Pudsey ears and collection buckets will be sent out to you on your successful application.
It’s a really fun way to raise amazing funds for BBC Children in Need and all the money collected will go towards the Round Table total!
I look forward to hearing from you.
