BBC Children In Need 2014: Be A Hero
November 14th will see the annual BBC Children In Need broadcast Appeal night to raise funds for disadvantaged children and young people right here in the UK. The theme this year is all about being a hero for BBC Children in Need . There’s lots of ways to get involved such as taking on a sporting challenge, baking cakes or dressing up as a superhero to name but a few.
We are proud to support such a fantastic charity again this year and will be calling on the Great British public to buy Be A Hero badges which cost just £1 each and are available exclusively from the Post Office and Post Office Shop.
A number of celebrities have been showing their support for Be A Hero including Peter Andre, Sarah -Jane Crawford and Louie Spence who’ve donned superhero costumes and have been showing off the Be A Hero badges.
Peter Andre said “I think everyone dreams of being a superhero as a kid, so to get the chance to do it properly with the cape and the wind machine was something special! Fun aside, it’s all for a great cause. Having seen first-hand the great work that BBC Children in Need do, we’re all hoping that everyone will be a hero and show their support.”
Everyone can Be A Hero for BBC Children in Need by purchasing the badges in branch or online at PostOfficeShop.co.uk. Badges are available from Post Office branches in singles. If you’re a school, workplace or community group you can buy a pack of 10 badges from Postofficeshop.co.uk.
There are two fantastic badge designs to choose from, the small badge with a black and silver design shaped like a superhero’s shield and featuring the slogan of ‘Be A Hero’ around the outer circle with Pudsey Bear in the middle of the shield standing out.
Alternatively the brightly coloured large badge with its red and blue spiral background and inspired by superhero outfits from the silver screen and with Pudsey Bear at its centre.
All proceeds from the Be A Hero badges (less VAT) go directly to helping to change the lives of disadvantaged children and young people all across the UK
Everyone has a favourite superhero so why don’t you prepare a fancy dress outfit to mark the occasion, or, if not ,don’t forget to buy a Be A Hero badge to show your support!
