BBC looking to promote Rotary and the things we do for Children in Need - I need YOU!

"We are looking for great stories to feature on our social channels about our top supporters and I was wondering if any of your volunteers might be able to feature?

We will need a good quality image with a bit of copy around the individual. Some good starting questions would be:
  •      What did you do?
  •      Why did you do that thing in particular?
  •      Why did you do it for BBC Children in Need?
  •      Do you have any personal connection to BBC Children in Need?
  •      How did you feel before / during / after?
  •      What was the highlight?
  •      Would you recommend it?
  •      Do you have a top tip for fellow fundraisers?
We will need permissions from the individual to use the image, and I can’t guarantee the post, (although I will push for it!)"

Message from BBC Children in Need 


Thank You
BBC Children in Need head office want to say a huge THANK YOU to Rotary volunteers for their amazing fundraising efforts towards the 2019 appeal.
If you are hosting your own BBC Children in Need fundraiser please remember to take lots of photos and share them with Paul Fisher: and most importantly have fun!

Cambridge Rutherford Rotary organised a collection at their local shopping centre and raised £1600!

Please use the following bank account when paying in your Children in Need funds and email me with your total and a scan/photo of the paying-in slip.  This is a BBC Children in Need controlled and managed bank account set up especially for Rotary.

I need to receive a photo or scan of the paying-in slip from each deposit.

Here is an example of the paying-in slip for HSBC which must be used:


Any clubs organising activities near Swindon or Belfast?

I have had direct contact from two very keen volunteers who would like to take part in any fundraising activities being held by Rotary in the Belfast or Swindon area.

If you know of anything they can get involved with, please let me know ASAP.


District Coordinators

I am looking for one person from each District to take on local coordination of BBC Children in Need activities for 2018-19.

You will get a dedicated email address to use ( for District 1090) and full support from me at National level.

I hope this will help clubs get involved as they will have someone local to talk to who knows the area.

Initially, I will make this a 3 year appointment so no-one feels they are locked in forever, and also gives others who would like to get more involved the opportunity to do more.

Please email me if you would like to know more about being the District coordinator for your district.

Thank you to those who have taken this on for the first time this year, it makes a huge difference and will help us raise the bar each year!

District 1090 - Annie Roy-Barker -
District 1130 - Christine Wong -
District 1150 - Kirsty Willing -
District 1190 - Jacqui Taylor -
District 1210 - John Sayer -

Total raised so far...

Thank you to those clubs that have successfully banked their money as requested above.

Our total confirmed and banked so far is... £56,327.47!

As more receipts come in I will update this figure.  Remember our pledge (and therefore our target) is £125,000 up to 30th June 2020.
