Doing our thing for BBC Children in Need
What a great time we had on Children in Need Appeal Night! For the fourth year running, we opened our Customer Service Centre to take donations from the public into the early hours of the morning.
Over 350 staff volunteered to man (and bear!) the phones over the night, with around 3,500 calls received from generous donors across the UK. And we had a great time doing it, too!
Emma Brodie, our Senior Community Officer and one of our event organisers, said: “We’re delighted that the big event was such a success! We’ve developed a very strong relationship with Children in Need and were delighted when they asked us to be an official call centre once again”.
