Benedict Cumberbatch and Kate Winslet are amongst the stars supporting BBC Children in Need’s ‘Get Your Ears On’ campaign.
As the BBC Children in Need Appeal night approaches (Friday 17th November 2017) Benedict Cumberbatch and Kate Winslet are amongst the latest stars encouraging the nation to ‘get their ears on’ and support the 2017 Appeal.
Other stars backing the campaign this year include Game of Thrones actors Kit Harington, Lena Headey, Rose Leslie and Maisie Williams. Also among those supporting are Claire Foy, Andrew Garfield, Shania Twain, Liv Tyler, and Breaking Bad actor Giancarlo Esposito.
The stars have come together to encourage the Great British public to join them and help make a lasting, positive difference to the lives of disadvantaged children and young people across the UK by purchasing a pair of Pudsey ears and getting their ears on for BBC Children in Need.
Super Furry LED Pudsey or Blush Ears can be found on BBC Children in Need’s website, or on the high street, they’re priced at £4 with at least 46% from the sale of the Pudsey ears and 44% of the Blush ears going to benefit the charity.
BBC Children in Need currently supports over 2,500 projects right across the UK and in the past year alone has made a positive difference to almost half a million disadvantaged young people.
To date the Great British public has raised £909 million for children and young people across the UK.
The annual BBC Children in Need Appeal show returns to the nation’s television screens on BBC One on Friday 17th November.
