Today is the BBC’s Children in Need Extravaganza!

Friday 19th November 2010

Today is the big day around the UK, for charities, schools, companies and groups to get together as a community and raise as much money as possible for Children in Need. And this evening, Friday 19th November, promises an extravaganza of seven hours of live TV entertainment. Thousands of volunteers across the UK are preparing to dedicate their day to raising money for disadvantaged children in the UK and the rest of the world. Using the combined efforts of the media and the kindness of the community in the UK, they hope to smash last year’s grand total of £39m. The BBC’s website tells you how to donate, fundraising packs, where to buy Pudsey goodies and what’s happening for Children in Need in your own area.

Children in Need’s mission is "to make a positive change to the lives of disadvantaged children and young people right here in the UK".

Starting at 7pm tonight, hundreds of stars and celebrities join Terry Wogan for an evening of live appeals from the BBC Television Centre.
