For many years the BBC has encouraged a great deal of people to help raise millions of pounds through their telethon ‘Children in Need’. This is a televised event which takes place one Friday in November every year to provide funding for children’s charities in the UK and throughout the rest of the world. Large organisations, smaller groups and individuals throughout the UK raise donations by performing a variety of different sponsored events.
We at EC Brighton did our bit on Friday 15th November by coming to school in our pyjamas. Thanks to the generosity of staff and students – and the bulldog-like tenacity of those shaking the collection buckets – we raised £237 for this appeal. A special thanks to Sam Turner for organising the event and to our intern Simon Berliere for helping out. Well done guys!
