The BBC is celebrating 30 years in Jersey - and over that time islanders have raised hundreds of thousands of pounds to support Children in Need - many of whom have benefited here in Jersey.

This year BBC Radio Jersey held an auction for two tickets to the BBC Children in Need Rocks concert in Manchester.

Kitty Murphy from St Helier bid £2,010 for the concert featuring Lady Gaga, JLS, Coldplay, Ed Sheeran, Elbow, N Dubz, Hugh Laurie, Snow Patrol and Michael Buble.

On Tuesday 15 November, the BBC in Jersey hosted a gala screening of Grease at Cineworld.

About 200 islanders went along and helped raise more than £1,000 for Children in Need. That went up to nearly £1,800 when the sale of merchandising and donations were taken into account.


This year's Children in Need day is on Friday 18 November.

Pudsey will spend two days touring Jersey on 17 and 18 November visiting schools to meet the young fundraisers supporting the appeal.

He will be with BBC Radio Jersey presenters Chris Stone on Thursday and Kevin Pamplin on Friday.

And BBC Radio Jersey's Murray Norton and Phil Taylor will be out and about dropping in at offices, shops and workplaces raising money for BBC Children in Need.

Also on the day itself, BBC Radio Jersey's Breakfast Show with Chris Stone is broadcasting live from the Broad Street Cafe, opposite the Post Office, from 07:00 to 10:00 GMT.
