Children in Need 2018

Posted on: 04/11/2018

After raising over £200 for Wear It Pink Day, Woodstock will be turning our fundraising attentions to Children in Need on Friday 16th November.

BBC Children in Need is the BBC’s official UK charity. With the money that you raise, they provide grants to projects that improve the lives of disadvantaged children and young people across the UK.

Currently, there are thousands of UK children living with poverty, abuse, disability and overwhelming responsibilities. They want to change that; to ensure that every child in the UK has a life that is safe, happy and secure and which empowers them to achieve their potential.

They've identified seven building blocks that they believe every child needs to live a happy, secure, safe and enriching life, and that all of our work is built on. You can read more about these building blocks on their website. But the really important thing for you to know is, they can only keep changing lives with our help. 

We'll be sending a letter out in the coming days to tell you all about what we intend to do.
