From the BBC’s publicity on the Appeal

‘At the heart of every Appeal are the amazing armies of fundraisers across the nation and this year their call to arms is "Show your spots let's raise lots!" Showing your spots doesn't mean doing anything difficult, expensive or scary, it just means doing something outside of your normal routine to help us raise money, which could be as simple as wearing spots, or as daring as a sponsored abseil.

This year Pudsey is accompanied by his best bear friend, Blush, who will be lending a helping paw during the busy Appeal countdown. Pudsey is also getting even more digital; for those Facebook fans Pudsey's Facebook page will be announcing all the latest BBC Children in Need news; while, the BBC Children in Need website will allow users to put virtual Pudsey ears on photos of their families and friends, giving everyone the chance to be Britain's favourite yellow bear.

Last year, thanks to the amazing generosity of the British public, a record breaking £39 million was raised. This is currently being used to really change enhance the lives of thousands of disadvantaged youngsters right here in the UK. ‘

There are always lots events organised by Jersey people and groups to help raise funds for the Appeal. Please let us know what you are up to and we will publicise these via my Blog and also on our Events page.
