BBC Children in Need’s Principal Partner
In 2014, we became BBC Children in Need’s first ever Principal Partner, taking on an exclusive role as their school fundraising partner until the start of 2017. As first ever Principal Partner to BBC Children in Need, are are proud to have yet again contributed a record-breaking amount to the charity appeal.
With over £5.5 million being raised by colleagues and customers so far in 2016, almost one million pounds more than at this point last year, we have broken our own fundraising record of raising the most ever by a corporate partner of BBC Children in Need in a single year. Combined with last year’s total, Group colleagues and customers have now raised over £11.2 million for the charity in just two years, supporting our ambition to help Britain prosper through its commitment to supporting communities through fundraising and volunteering. The money is helping BBC Children in Need to fund over 300 projects and support over 39,000 disadvantaged children and young people across the UK.
