The 2015 total is the highest amount of money raised by the Charity in its history, and is the culmination of the efforts of every single person across the UK who did something to raise money, from cake baking to sky diving. The money raised will go to community projects across the UK to make a difference to the lives of disadvantaged children and young people.
Speaking of the total David Ramsden, Chief Executive of BBC Children in Need, says:
It’s been a sad year for us, Sir Terry Wogan was at the heart of the Charity for over 30 years; he would be very proud of this record-breaking total.
Each year the public never ceases to amaze us with all they do for BBC Children in Need. It’s their support that enables us to make a difference to young lives across the UK. Thank you, you make it possible.
BBC Children in Need currently funds around 2,400 projects across the UK including the Wester Hailes Youth Agency who receive funding to run a drop-in youth club for young people living in Wester Hailes
