As you may already know, Friday 15th November 2020 is the annual Appeal Day for BBC Children in Need. This year, the fundraising challenge has received an exciting boost from The Body Coach, Joe Wicks, who has joined as Schools Ambassador.
We are excited to be joining with many others around the UK to participate in the fundraising programme. Joe is working with schools in a number of ways to inspire and empower children in their efforts. He has some lessons and resources to get children having fun whilst learning about exercise and movement; plus, some ‘5- minute move’ workout videos made especially for the classroom.
On the appeal morning at 9 a.m., schools across the UK are getting together to be active and raise money. Joe will be hosting the ‘Big Morning Move’, an exclusive activity session tailored for schools, which will be livestreamed on the BBC Children in Need YouTube channel. By donating £1 to enter, children can raise money whilst getting active. To be prepared for the ‘Big Morning Move’, children can come to school on Friday 15th November in sports gear, non-uniform or dressed up, as they prefer. We can accept £1 donations, as we will quarantine the cash before banking it!
