Looking ahead to BBC Children in Need in the East Midlands.

12 November 2013 Last updated at 11:36 GMT

As the East Midlands prepares for BBC Children in Need night on Friday, figures show the region raised more than £1m last year.

The money has gone towards helping 136 projects in the area, with grants totalling £6m.

Projects such as Charnwood 20:20, which helps teenage girls at risk in Loughborough, received almost £87,000 for its scheme.

The Nottingham Photographers' Hub was given almost £90,000 to help young people, some of them homeless.

The biggest slice of the money - about a third - goes to projects dealing with child poverty.
