Since BBC Children in Need began we’ve raised over £740 million. Thanks to people like you, in the last year we’ve been able to help the lives of 480,000 disadvantaged children and young people in the UK. You never cease to amaze us with your generosity. 

Our vision is that every child in the UK has a safe, happy and secure childhood and the chance to reach their potential.
We provide grants to projects in the UK which focus on children and young people who are truly disadvantaged. We are local to people in all corners of the UK and support small and large organisations which empower children and extend their life choices.

Event details

Welcome Break Nine Hour Challenge

The Welcome Break Nine Hour Challenge is raising vital funds for BBC Children in Need. The Challenge is a gruelling nine hour bike and hike through the trails and mountains of the Langdale Pikes in the Lake District. Our aim is to collectively cover a distance equivalent to London to Rome and a climb equal to 10 times the height of Everest! Please help us make a difference for disadvantaged children and young people in the UK.
