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

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.
