Children In Need’s first ever Children In Need fundraising event was held on Christmas Day in 1927. It was a five minute radio broadcast that raised £1,143, in 1955, the appeal was shown on television for the first time.
BBC Children In Need is the BBC’s UK Charity, since 1980 it has raised over £890 million to help make a difference to the lives of disadvantaged children and young people around the uk.
Pudsey The Charities famous Mascot made his first TV appearance in 1985 and instantly transformed the Children In Need brand. He was created by BBC designer Joanna Ball, and took his name from her home town in Yorkshire.
The late Sir Terry Wogan famously presented BBC Children in need for 35 years until 2014, on January 31st 2016 he sadly passed away from Cancer aged 77. Sir Terry hosted alongside Fearne Cotton, and many Celebrities from 1980 to 2014, to date his friends continue his legacy.
Singer/Songwriter Katie Melua pays homage to Sir Terry with this years Children In Need single “Fields of Gold” one of Terry’s favourite songs.
Jo Wiskin (Sirius Music) qoutes: “I had the pleasure of meeting Sir Terry Wogan when I was personally invited with Lookalike friends into the audience of BBC Children In Need in 2005, he came and shook our hands and thanked us for our support and donation. Sir Terry was someone I enjoyed watching on TV growing up; when we met him he was so humble, so friendly, and such a Character”, A great loss to Children In Need and the Entertainment Industry.
