Children in Need

BBC Children in Need is the BBC's UK corporate charity. Its vision is that every child in the UK has a childhood which is safe, happy and secure and allows them the chance to reach their potential. Its independent committee’s award grants seven times a year to projects run by organisations which focus on children and young people who are disadvantaged. Those carefully scrutinised projects empower children and extend their life choices. Every penny from the money you raise or donate to BBC Children in Need will help disadvantaged children and young people right here in the UK.

ERIN

ERIN
Erin was diagnosed with Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis at the age of eight, and she now faces near-constant pain from the condition.  Thanks to Arthritis Care Scotland, an organisation funded by BBC Children in Need, she has found ways to cope with her situation and has been able to regain her confidence. In 2015 she joined Team Rickshaw to ride alongside Matt Baker for the 470 mile journey from Land’s End to London’s East End.

PETER

PETER
At the age of 11, Peter was involved in a car crash which tragically claimed the lives of his mother and sister. Since then he has received support from Penhaligon’s Friends, a charity which relies on BBC Children in Need funding to help young people like Peter who have been bereaved. In 2013 he hit the road with Matt Baker and his fellow team mates in an around-the-clock Rickshaw Challenge across the UK.
