With the 2019 BBC Children in Need Appeal show on the horizon, BBC Look North has teamed up with local entertainment for its Party for Pudsey event at Queens Gardens, Hull near BBC Open Centre on Friday 15 November from 6pm.
Hosted by BBC Look North presenter, Peter Levy, the free event will see live music from local bands including Freedom Road, and a range of fundraising activities for the whole community to get involved in. Families will also get the chance to meet Pudsey, the nation’s favourite yellow bear, while raising funds for the 2019 BBC Children in Need Appeal.
Ahead of the event, Peter Levy said: “BBC Children in Need is a fantastic charity and every year we see the amazing work it does in the local area. I’m delighted to be presenting our event – it is really about having fun and to say thank you to everyone who has raised funds for this year’s Appeal. The party is open to all and we want as many people as possible to come along and join us in Hull city centre.”
Supporting BBC Children in Need this year will help fund even more projects like New Life Support in Goole, which benefits from a three year grant of £98,188, to provide a youth programme to disadvantaged children and young people living in local area. The project enables young people to access recreational and creative activities and workshops, as well as one to one support sessions to help to raise aspirations for the future.
BBC Children in Need currently funds 45 projects across East Yorkshire, North Lincolnshire and North East Lincolnshire with funding of more than £2.3million hard at work across the regions.
