Children in Need
The BBC’s Children in Need appeal is held each year on a Friday in November. The focus of the appeal is the Children in Need telethon, a whole evening of entertainment featuring various celebrities, but many other events and fundraising activities take place around the country.
Since 1980, Children in Need has supported children’s projects in the UK by raising over £650 million.
We are pleased to announce that all the performers fees for this concert will be donated to Children in Need.
