Children In Need provide grants to projects in the UK which focus on children and young people who are disadvantaged. They are local to people in all corners of the UK and support small and large organisations which empower children and extend their life choices.

They are currently supporting 2,400 projects all across the UK. The projects they fund help children facing a range of disadvantages for example poverty and deprivation; children who have been the victims of abuse or neglect or disabled young people.

We were keen to support such a fantastic charity and had plenty happening around school to support this year’s fundraiser including: sponge the teacher, beer (less) pong, a table tennis tournament and basketball free throw challenge. 

The whole of Aston University Engineering Academy and Aston University Sixth Form came together and managed to raise over £600.
