Act your age for Children in Need this year

It’s nearly that time of year again to support Children in Need.

They are the BBC’s charity and their mission is to help ensure every child in the UK is safe, happy, secure and has the opportunities they need to reach their potential.

This year, they are asking us to take your age and do something good with it.

Simply take your age and turn it into a fundraiser.

Suggestions include , A 7 year old riding their bike for 7 miles, A 40 year old doing a 40 mile hike or a 10 year old reading 10 books.

We would love to hear from anyone local who is taking part in an act your age challenge, please get in touch via email at

If the restrictions this year make it difficult for you to get involved, why not donate your age instead?
