Falkirk district is about to witness another madcap night of fundraising events for this year’s Children In Need campaign.

Friday night will be full of people taking baths full of beans or climbing mountains and running miles to raise money for the campaign which has raised more than £740 million since it first began in 1980.

Money raised from Children In Need helps disadvantaged children and young people across Britain and is one of the best-loved events of the year.

Sir Terry Wogan, BBC Children in Need Life president, said: “It was my privilege to present the very first Children in Need in 1980 and over the years it has truly become the British public’s charity. Their extraordinary generosity has meant that their donations of over £740 million have made a real difference to the lives of this country’s disadvantaged children and young people.”

The BBC show on Friday will be full of celebrities filmed in the likes of Albert Square in sketches, a cartoon with Tom and Jerry, an all-star choir and, of course, the famous Pudsey bear.
