Children in Need Charity Fundraising


This morning I encountered the above group of dedicated fund raisers for the U.K. wide charity, Children in Need. This deserving charity  is heavily supported by the BBC and over the years has raised about GBP1bn for benefit of disadvantaged children. The 2023 fund raising culminates tonight in a televised extravaganza.

I was advised the lady in the centre of the above image (with polka dot top) has won a special award for raising funds over a period of 35 years.

I assume the Piper below was performing to support the fund raising. The tune he is playing is a Scottish song Flower of Scotland which is frequently performed on special occasions and at sporting events as the National anthem of Scotland.

I encountered these people at Rouken Glen Boating Pond, Glasgow.
