Children in Need is a BBC charity. Thanks to the support of the public, Children in Need is able to make a real difference to the lives of children all across the UK.

The charity provide grants to projects in the UK which focus on children and young people who are disadvantaged. It currently supports 2,400 projects all across the UK. The projects funded help children facing a range of disadvantages for example poverty and deprivation; children who have been the victims of abuse or neglect or disabled young people.
To raise money and awareness for the great cause, we had a non-uniform day and we paid to take part in a range of sporting activities led by the Sports Leaders in Year 6.
