Brilliant cause and I have done a lot myself over the years for Children in Need.

But am I wrong to think in current circumstances that today this is just a bit awkward. Are the BBC going to mention child abuse or Savile, etc, shoud they..........this same organisation is itself now central in more than one developing alleged child welfare abuse investigation after all.

Perhaps they could have waited for the dust to settle and passed over this year's event and directed people instead to the many alternative child welfare donation routes.

Record amount raised, I think there may be.

anyone sending money to the bbc's children in need,
should be locked up for aiding and abetting a paedophile outfit.you should also cancel the licence fee.

do something directly for children in your local area.

the BBC... that throw single mums in prison because they can't afford the mandatory fee thats dictated to watch TV, then have a whip round for the now needy kids of those very same mothers. (despite being an organisation that made £40.1 million profit last year)
