In 2009-2011, the BBC with your help, raised millions of pounds for charities throughout the UK. Thank you!
Here’s a list of the appeals which took place or were reported on in 2009-2011.
Because the charities connected to the appeals have different financial years and different reporting cycles (some biennial), not all the appeals took place during the financial year 2009-2011.
The appeals included:
BBC Children in Need raised £46m in 2011, however these figures are provisional, as donations are still coming in.
Red Nose Day, run by Comic Relief in partnership with the BBC, raised £108.4 million.
Sport Relief, run by Comic Relief in partnership with the BBC, raised £44,200,000.
The Blue Peter appeal for 2013 will once again be raising money for BBC Children in Need. The on-air activities will be launching in the autumn of 2013 - please check out the Blue Peter website to take part or for more information.
The BBC Wildlife Fund has raised £1,185,154 to support projects working with endangered species.
The Performing Arts Fund does not run appeals, but receives income from voting on BBC programmes such as Strictly Come Dancing.
In the period 2010-11, the BBC Performing Arts Fund raised £714,494.
In the year 2010-11, the BBC Radio 4 Appeal raised more than £2.3m for 51 charities working in the UK and overseas. £1.5m of this came from donations to the St Martins in the Fields Christmas Appeal. Some listeners make regular donations to the Radio Four Appeal Fund by setting up a monthly, quarterly or annual standing order or by cheque.
