Once every year in the UK there is Children in Need day where the whole country unites in the preceding weeks to plan events and fundraising for those children that are in need. With the endorsement of the Children in Need mascot Pudsey Bear who unites people and encourages them to to help in any way they can to raise the money. The money raised is used to help many charities in the UK and children worldwide. It is spent on many Nobel causes and helps those who are less fortunate than us. Schools, work places, hospitals, famous celebrities, the young and the old all unite to put on shows, charity events, concerts, sales, raising money by donations and sponsorship.
It brings unity and comradeship amongst fellow workers, friends and country man as all are working for the same cause to raise money for Children in Need. This year the country as a whole has raised £ 20,309,747 with monies still pouring in.
