Here at Connect Insurance we are always interested in raising money for charity and this year is no different. Earlier in the year we were heavily involved with Donna Louise and raised over £1000 for the charity, to find out more about this please see our earlier blog here. As you can see from the image above we decided to have a dress down day for Children In Need, this meant that everybody could come in their casual clothes as long as they bring a pound to donate to the cause.

Children In Need is back as the stars join brave members of the public to raise money for charity. The annual telethon is coming, with all the skits, songs, sketches and celebrities viewers have come to expect from BBC One’s huge extravaganza. Since the death of Terry Wogan last year there will be a touch of sadness surrounding the show, but the stars will hope to raise as much money as possible in his honour.

The annual fundraiser takes place on Friday 17th November, with the appeal telethon kicking off at 7.30pm on BBC One. Some big names such as Tess Daly, Graham Norton, Mel Giedroyc, Ade Adepitan and more will be hosts throughout the show and will guide viewers through a night of entertainment aiming to raise millions for Children In Need. Not only will there be an array of celebrity appearances and musical performances – there is also an expected sneak peak of the Doctor Who Christmas special.

Anyone can get involved in Children In Need this year by donating online and fundraising themselves. You can download a fundraising kit online to get started in helping change young lives across the UK.
