Sssssssshhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!! Silence Is Golden
There is a reason for the strange blog title… on Friday 19th November I did a sponsored silence in aid of Children In Need and raised an amazing £900 for the charity… speaks volumes about how much my silence is worth.
BBC Children in Need’s mission is to make a positive change to the lives of disadvantaged children and young people across the UK. Their vision is a society where each and every child and young person is supported to realise their potential. The money raised makes a real difference to the lives of thousands of disadvantaged children and young people across the UK. With these funds, BBC Children in Need are able to make grants to voluntary projects, community groups and registered charities that will offer practical and lasting support to children and young people:
- Experiencing poverty, deprivation or homelessness
- Suffering from illness, abuse, distress or neglect
- With learning, sensory or physical disabilities
- With behavioral and psychological disorders.
The UK wide structure enables the charity to understand local needs, build relationships with local organisations and respond appropriately to local requirements, it also enables us to ensure that children in all corners of the UK have the opportunity to benefit from the funds we raise.
