Eleven weeks. 77 days. 1,848 hours. 

That’s how long until I fly out of London, heading across the seas to the African continent, to climb Mt. Kilimanjaro for Dig Deep.

Not that I’m counting.

Children in Need's Pudsey (photo credited to tEdits - flickr)

From 7.30PM til midnight tonight I sat down and watched the BBC’s ‘Children in Need‘ Appeal Show.

This is an annual fundraising event that has been going on, in telethon format, since 1980. And since 1985 the official mascot of Children in Need has been Pudsey the bear.

Children in Need is the BBC UK’s corporate charity. It provides grants to UK projects which focus on disadvantaged children and young people. Children living in poverty, suffering from severe disabilities and life altering illnesses, children who suffer abuse of all kinds.

Every year the BBC hosts an Appeal Show which provides entertainment from a wide range of celebrities, and encourages you and me -the public- to donate money to this worthy cause.
