Be a Hero for BBC Children in Need by helping us raise funds this year

BBC Children in Need is a cause that’s close to our hearts. As you read this, thousands of Post Office people around the country are being heroes. They’re raising lots of money for disadvantaged children and young people in the UK, with some going to extraordinary lengths to raise funds. 

Last year, you helped us raise a whopping £1.26m for BBC Children in Need – and we’re hoping you’ll help us beat that record this year! For that to happen, we need your help.

Anyone who supports a great cause is a hero in our eyes, which is why we’re calling on you to channel your inner hero and get involved with BBC Children in Need, 2015 edition.

So what are you waiting for? Head to your local Post Office branch and get involved!

Ways to donate

This year, we have made it even easier to donate to BBC Children in Need

There are several ways in which you can help support this amazing charity.

Buy a badge and be a hero

You may have already seen these eye-catching Be A Hero badges sported by our celebrity superheroes, including Big Brother presenter Rylan Clark and Pussycat Doll Ashley Roberts.

Anyone who donates to a great cause is a hero in our eyes – and our special Be A Hero badges will make sure that the entire country is aware of your heroics!

They come in two eye-catching designs and cost just £1 each, with all the money (less VAT) going to charity. Make sure your heroism doesn’t go unnoticed; pick one up, either from our online shop or by visiting your local Post Office branch.

Donate foreign currency

If you’re one of the average UK households that have £110.45 in leftover holiday currency, why not put it to good use? Your local Post Office has a foreign currency coin donation box at the counter – simply chuck in your unwanted Rubles/Dollars/Euros (or any other coins you want to rid yourself of) and we will make sure it goes straight to BBC Children in Need.

Registered charity number 802052 in England & Wales and SC039557 in Scotland.
