TCC Does its Thing for Children in Need
Last Friday, The Contact Company hosted a number of different events to “do their thing” and raise money for the BBC’s Children in Need 2016 appeal. The money raised will go on to help transform the lives of disadvantaged children and young people across the UK.
The morning got off to an exciting start, with a visit from BBC Radio Merseyside and Pudsey Bear himself!
TCC Operations Manager and Charity Champion, Albert Smyth, spoke about the importance of Children in Need to BBC Radio Merseyside: “Most people have connections with kids, or have kids, so everyone’s going to need it someday- everyone’s going to need that support” (@bbcmerseyside).
The day also saw a number of leg waxes, stomach waxes and even arm-pit waxes, all to raise money for a great cause…
TCC employees donned their PJs for £1 and talented TCC employees also provided Pudsey-style face painting- all for a donation, of course!
BBC Children in Need works throughout the year to ensure that every child in the UK has a safe, happy and secure childhood, and the chance to reach their full potential. It relies on the energy and commitment of thousands of fundraisers and supporters across the UK, who donate their time and money to put on events in support of the appeal. Whether doing your baking thing, your fancy-dress party thing or your challenge thing, every penny raised will help support projects across the UK.
In total, The Contact Company raised £1,343.34 for Children in Need.
At the time of publication, the BBC Children in Need appeal had raised a record £46.6+m for children across the U.K.
