We will be collecting pennies (and pounds) in the playground before and after school for Children in Need. Please empty old coat pockets, look down the back of the sofa and send all your spare change in to school for this worthy cause.
BBC Children in Need (CIN) is the BBC’s UK corporate charity. Thanks to the support of the public, Children in Need able to make a real difference to the lives of children all across the UK. Children in Need provide grants to projects in the UK, which focus on children and young people who are disadvantaged. They are local to people in all corners of the UK and support small and large organisations, which empower children and extend their life choices.
Children in Need are currently supporting 2,400 projects all across the UK. The projects they fund help children facing a range of disadvantages for example poverty and deprivation; children who have been the victims of abuse or neglect or disabled young people.
So as you can imagine, every penny helps. Whatever you can spare goes a long way to making a child’s life a better one.
