    So, what will you be doing for Children in Need this year?

    Just making a donation whilst watching on TV by phone, txt or twitter?
    Having a party?
    Doing something outrageous?

    I've bought a number of Countryfile Calendars which gives £5 each to CinN, but I won't watch the programme.

    The much trailed sketches - Lord Sugar on EE, a Dr Who one etc - last less than 5 minutes and are sometimes even split into 2 halves.

    I don't know why a decent length - even 15 minutes - sketch cannot be filmed. It might then be worth watching.

    And our local opt out is cringe makingly awful.

    However, our Leggs the baker staff were dressed up this week and collecting money via raffle tickets but the big supermarkets seem to be more or less ignoring CinN this year. Not sure if the primary school kids will be dressing up or anything.

    I'm waiting to watch The Mystery of Pudsey Bear's Eye Sketch with Misery Bear & Geri Halliwell.

    I'm a big fan of his - his Kate Moss special last year for CIN - well, have a watch, pour yourself a glass of wine or a Jack Daniels first. smiley - redwine

    The kids at our karate class are coming dressed in their pjs. Not much of a difference from their karate suits if you ask me!

    I collect for children in need but give the whole lot to a local children's charity. That way I know they get all the money.

    Sorry BBC.

    Collecting for any charity has to be a good thing. smiley - ok


    It might be more ethical to tell people which charity you are *actually* collecting for though, rather than deceive them and tell them it's for 'Children in Need' when it's not?

    -----

    It's also worth noting that for every penny you give Children in Need, a penny will go directly towards projects helping disadvantaged children and young people here in the UK.

    We are able to make this promise because the charity uses its investment income and Gift Aid to cover all running costs.

    That's unlikely to be the case with the children's charity that you're giving to, as they will deduct money to cover their running costs, expenses, offices and so on.

    Peta,

    You refer to charities deducting money to cover their running costs, expenses, offices and so on but the public already indirectly helps this cause because the BBC offers much in the way of infrastructure support such as office space, IT and production and admin support. Yes, gift aid may have mitigated some of that, but just as it does with all charitable causes.

    In the interests of clarity and accuracy, last year's BBC CiN accounts showed that almost £5 million of the money contributed went on staff salaries, pension contributions and other running costs, so not *every* penny you give Children in Need goes directly towards projects helping disadvantaged children and young people here in the UK.

    I cannot see why a (for all intents and purposes) publically backed charity, which already has over £80 mill parked in the bank, needs to extract more and more money from the finite public gift pool. The disadvantage is even more pronouced by relying on its unique and distinct market advantage over smaller charities which can offer local relief and help far more effectively.

    It is true to say that

    "For every penny you give us, a penny will go towards projects helping disadvantaged children and young people here in the UK."

    You can take a look at the 2010 accounts report, here

    www.charity-commissi...

    How does the charity cover its costs?

    We are in a privileged position because of the support provided by the BBC - which includes the production and broadcast of the BBC One telethon - and the generosity of donors, fundraisers, schools, businesses and our corporate partners. The charity does incur running costs but in previous years, these have been covered by our investment income and reserves of investment income from prior years.

    We also use our Gift Aid income to help fund our running costs.

    When we award funding to a project this may be for a period of up to three years.

    Giving a longer term grant ensures that the project can get well established and be in position to have a real impact on the lives of disadvantaged children and young people.

    To ensure the project is well run we don't give all the funding upfront, but release the money in yearly instalments after receiving a report on the work that has been done to date. This means we have some funds on deposit in our bank awaiting distribution. This money earns investment income, as does the money in our reserves, and it is from this income and Gift Aid income that we will cover all our running costs this year.

    Other that a couple of positive comments it is the usual POV moaning

    Dover asked what we would be doing for Children In Need and if people choose to avoid it, they are entitled to say so!

    Many support local charities throughout the year - those that do not benefit from an evening of high profile broadcasting.

    I am pleased that Peta has posted info on how to apply for money from CinN - something which I feel should be flagged up on the evening as well. Many small charities would benefit from an allocation of CinN money, but perhaps do not know how to apply.

    Chapeau, Peta.

    That report states there were 555 grant applications made, with a total value of £30 mill or so. Which is fine, but I would take issue with the spirit, if not the reality, of your statement. When you have disclosed running costs running at however many millions and when you have a huge subsidy from a public body, the picture changes doesn't it?

    The annual accounts are lovely and a joy to behold. Why wouldn't you feel nice and warm inside.. they're full of bright primary colours, abstract images, smiling and healthy faces, confidence inspiring charity executives, positive messages and beautifully crafted prose.. all done to the highest level by professionals who know how to administer a feel good factor to the donor.

    My local kiddies charity is run on a shoestring budget by people who don't have the luxury of a) newsreaders taking time off in lieu to hoon around a race circuit who wouldn't spare a second thought to something without the promise of a some exposure, b) retirement provision catered for by other people with their contributions or run from warm offices paid for by the public.

    But the chickens are coming home to roost and I suspect, more than ever right now, a body once as great as, and now as void of credibility such as the BBC desperately needs CiN more than children in need need one monolithic empire building charity supping up cash and disbursing love and goodness which could be provided far more effectively if derived from a local source. So some things won't change.

    Yes, I know how hard small local children's charities work - I used to be employed by one!

    BBC Children in Need distributes grants to voluntary organisations, community groups and registered charities which work with children and young people aged 18 and under living in the UK, Channel Islands or Isle of Man.

    So your local children's charity would be able to apply directly for a grant, which might make life easier for them, and benefits the children that they support.

    They can apply for a grant online early next year.

    I's a touchy subject but, in view of the recent scandal, will any mention be made of helping children who are sexually abused... because if there isn't I fear the media will use it as an excuse to crucify the BBC yet again, and I'm bored with it and want the attention back on the main story not on side issues

    The BBC won't know which charities and organisations have applied until after the event, so I don't think sexually abused children are likely to get 'a special mention'.

    How do you decide which projects to fund?

    Every year the funding requests exceed the amount of money raised but we carefully assess all applications to ensure that grants are targeted on areas of real need and funds are allocated geographically to ensure that all corners of the UK get a share of the money raised.

    The project being funded must fulfil the charity's mission statement, which is to change the lives of disadvantaged children and young people in the UK, and grants are only awarded to properly constituted not-for-profit organisations working with children and young people aged 18 and under. All eligible applications are reviewed by freelance assessors who assess the structure of an organisation and the proposals for projects. Voluntary committee members, based in each region, then draw on their expertise and local knowledge to advise our board of Trustees which projects should receive grants.

    Great. If kids in need haven't already got it tough, lets start creating a hierarchy of needs based on the merits of the story of the day. After all, a kid who got touched up is far more worthy than one living on 300 calories a day.. right?

    Of course charity is a tremendous thing and the raising of money for good causes utterly laudable however I cannot stand CIN or more to the point the "celebriies" who highjack the event for self-promotion. They are applauded like selfless heroes when it is obvious that the more your star wanes the more you are prepared to sacrifice modesty.

    And it really does make buttock-clenching embarrassing TV (Tara Palmer-Tomkinson and her cat screeching as an example). But, as no doubt many will argue, it does not matter how bad it is or who fights to the front of the self-promotion queue, it does raise a lot of many.

    Me, I will continue to give to Great Ormond Street and other charities via direct debit - over time it will accummulate far more than the trash fest that evokes so many standing ovations, whooping and hollering from CIN's studio mobs.

    I resent having my ethics questioned, however we bill the event as 'local children in need' and it's quite clear that all proceeds go to our local young carer's group, some of which come to our classes, hence the tie in.

    I've had several comments from the parents that they prefer the money to go locally so that's what we've decided to do.

    If you make it clear that you're *not* collecting for the BBC Children in Need appeal, but a local charity instead that's fine. Otherwise, that would be highly unethical and quite possibly illegal.

    But now you say that's *not* what you're doing, so that's great. Thanks for clearing that up.

    It's great that you're collecting for charity.

    I just thought it would be nice to hear about anyone doing something. A lot of people do, some very small things like me, some do unusual things, some do big things.

    I really didn't expect all this negativity.

    It would have been nice, just for once, to have a positive thead without all the moaning and whinging. Or are POVers too busy posting here to actually do anything?

    It would have been nice, just for once, to have a positive thead without all the moaning and whinging. Or are POVers too busy posting here to actually do anything?  Well, most of us ARE posting here, aren't we?

    But what I do in between clicking the 'Post Message' button is my business. smiley - winkeye

    Yes, and thank you for that the dogcody. I see your telling off and think............ if people aren't prepared to do anything themselves and don't want to watch the programme.......... then they shouldn't post anything because they have no interest.

    But that wouldn't be the way of the POVer's would it?

    Okay, so if you're doing something fab for Children in Need, tell us here.


    If you have a real question about Children in Need feel free to ask it here.



    If you're not donating, and don't have a question and just want to diss it, then why not just leave it to those involved, and go off and talk about TV programmes instead? No hard feelings but, if you're not interested then it's politer to those that *are* to just move along.

    Thanks

    Thanks Peta. But if the badness continues will you unpin or close the thread even if it does mean people may start lots of different threads about what is good and what they are doing tomorrow night? smiley - smiley

    Yes, but to be honest I think we'll have loads of threads by tomorrow night anyway!

    Let's see how it goes.

    It was a nice thought so thank you for starting the discussion.

    In that case I suggest each and every thread started with something genuine to say should NOT in this case be directed to this thread and we just enjoy and reply to them all over the weekend.
