Today, children and school staff around the country are taking part in a range of fun activities to raise money for Children in Need. The charity works to ensure that every child in the UK has a safe, happy, and secure childhood. They use the donations to fund their work and provide grants to organisations for projects that help disadvantaged children and young people all over the country.
Since hitting the airwaves of the BBC in 1980, Children in Need has helped raise over £950 million to help disadvantaged young people in the UK. Schools play a huge part in helping to raise money and supporting the event.
To raise money for Children in Need this year, we are all coming to school in our pyjamas or something spotty. We are also having a spotty cake sale and have Pudsey bear coming to visit!
At Zouch Academy, we view Children in Need as a great platform to teach our students how to be charitable and kind, and about the importance of helping others. Learning the significance of these values will help to develop lasting habits that will be practised in adult life.
Raising money for Children in Need is always a fantastic day at Zouch Academy. We have a huge amount of fun and love showing our school values to help other people.
