Children in Need: How the money is spent on the island

Manx children raise money for 2011 Children In Need appeal.

This year's Children in Need appeal is fast approaching and BBC Isle of Man is preparing for another fund-raising night with Pudsey.

Despite difficult economic conditions, last year's appeal raised more than £36m and helped over 1,000 across the British Isles.

This year's appeal will be held on Friday 18 November.

Three Isle of Man projects received three-year grants from the money raised in last year's appeal.

Crossroads Care received a £30,000 grant to improve the social and communication skills of disabled children and young people on the island.

The Children's Centre received a grant of £32,572 to provide activities and encourage social and personal development in children from deprived areas and Cruse Bereavement Care received £37,100 to support young people who have experienced bereavement.
