One4all has once again teamed up with BBC Children in Need to raise money for young people in the UK. Last year, the charity raised an incredible record-breaking £49.6m, which was used to fund over 2,600 projects and changed thousands of children’s lives.

With the BBC Children in Need Appeal show appearing on air on 14th November, thousands of people up and down the country are doing their bit to fundraise for the very important cause.

We’ve been asking our fans and followers what they’ve been doing to contribute, with everyone suggesting really fun and creative ways to get involved.

Some of the most popular choices amongst our fans are bake sales and coffee mornings. Whether you’re a dab hand with icing or you’ve got a secret family recipe, cookies, cake and coffee are an easy way to raise cash for the well deserving charity.

Others are choosing to get a little bit wacky with fancy dress costumes, a crazy hair day, or a pyjama party.

Another fun option is sponsorship. You could hold a sponsored silence or walk, or give up chocolate, and get friends and family to support your efforts by asking for a small donation. One of our followers is raising money by getting beans thrown at her!


Here’s what some of our other brilliant and thoughtful fans are doing to raise funds:

  • Both Olivia Kirby from Polesworth and Hazel Rae from Colchester are baking treats to sell at cake sales.

  • Mary Hill’s son, from Kilmarnock, and Natalie Bradley, are getting a little bit silly by sporting onesies to raise money. You can buy you and your kids onesies in a range of sizes and colours from Debenhams online.

  • Christine Down from Aberdeen is holding a coffee morning.

  • Mel Brolly from Truro, Cornwall, is being daring and doing a fancy dress themed sponsored cycle to raise awareness for the charity.

  • Hannah Mills from Bridgwater is dressing herself and her daughters as superheroes, following the popular Fundraising Hero campaign.

  • And here at One4all, we have designed a gift card which sports the famous Pudsey Bear mascot, with 2% of the value of every card going towards Children in Need.


If you’re pressed for time this weekend and don’t have time to organise your own fundraiser, the Pudsey Gift Card is a great way to contribute towards the charity. Plus, on top of donating to charity, you can give the gift card to a loved one for Christmas.

Do your bit by purchasing the Pudsey Gift Card online or at any UK Post Office.
