Last Friday evening saw the annual BBC Children in Need appeal. The appeal raised over £26 million on the night, a number which will undoubtedly rise.
The face of the television appeal is Sir Terry Wogan and he launched the evening and addressed viewers during the evening, whilst introducing an item supporting those who are involved in child protection work, over the crisis being faced by the BBC.
Sir Terry said “Children should be able to trust adults, that should be a given: our role is to protect them. Sadly, as we know, there are times when adults abuse that trust and in the film we’re about to show you, three workers from Children in Need-funded projects who help and support children, … tell us the dreadful effect (it) has on young lives, but how, with your help, we can make a difference”.
