Pudsey and Spurs help kick-off appeal for BBC Children in Need

08 November 2016|Tottenham Hotspur

As this year’s BBC Children in Need Appeal draws closer, the charity’s iconic mascot Pudsey paid a visit to Hotspur Way recently to have a kick around with Hugo Lloris, Eric Dier and Christian Eriksen.

The team are encouraging fans to get involved with this year’s ‘Do Your Thing’ fundraising campaign and show their support for the charity.

There are plenty of ways to ‘Do Your Thing’ and raise funds for BBC Children in Need. From fancy dress to fun runs, facing a fear or taking on a once-in-a-lifetime challenge, holding a bake sale or completing a sponsored silence, everyone can turn the thing they most fancy doing into an amazing fundraiser.

BBC Children in Need supports 2,400 projects working with disadvantaged children and young people across the UK. One of those projects is ‘Don’t Forget the Kids’ in Haringey, which supports young people who might have a parent or carer living with cancer or young people who have experienced bereavement. ‘Don't Forget the Kids’ facilitates arts, crafts, music and drama workshops, trips and outings as well as peer support sessions, which aim to help young people reduce any feelings of isolation and improve their coping mechanisms.

England international Eric said: “Having Pudsey down to join us was great fun, although I’m not sure he’s going to make the squad any time soon! We’re supporting BBC Children in Need and we want everyone to get behind the campaign and Do Your Thing.”

BBC Children in Need will return to screens on Friday, November 18, on BBC One. The official fundraising pack is available for download from bbc.co.uk/Pudsey and is packed with ideas to help the public with their fundraising efforts, plus lots of exclusive content from the charity’s celebrity friends.

To date, the Great British public has raised £845million for disadvantaged children and young people across the UK and the charity is calling on people to once again pull out all the stops and to help raise money to change young lives.
