Guernsey charities have been urged to apply for grants from BBC Children in Need.

Claire Cannock, the charity's regional co-ordinator, said: "We definitely don't get enough applications from the islands."

She encouraged charities to apply before the next application deadline on 15 January.

The Bailiwick has already raised more than £24,000 for the charity in 2011 and currently has one active grant.

The Guernsey Sports Commission was given a three-year grant of £75,330 for an outreach programme in November 2009.
