BBC Children in Need and Lookers

As proud partners of BBC Children in Need, we are aiming to raise £1 million to help disadvantaged young people across the UK. We kicked off proceedings with a visit from Pudsey Bear who flexed his fundraising muscles in an Operations Board Meeting at Lookers HQ. As Corporate Social Responsibility Director for the day, Pudsey helped to come up with some great fundraising ideas for us to deliver over the coming months.

Pudsey will also be visiting our dealerships to support our fundraising efforts to make a real difference to the lives of children and young people in our communities. With every Lookers dealership no more than five miles away from a project supported by BBC Children in Need, the impact will be acutely felt at a local level.

BBC Children in Need supports around 2,400 projects across the UK that are helping children facing a range of disadvantages. In the last year alone, BBC Children in Need has helped 480,000 children and young people in communities all across the UK.

Our CEO, Andy Bruce, said, “We are delighted to be supporting such a worthy cause and it is great to see the impact BBC Children in Need already makes in our communities. I’m certainly looking forward to encouraging all of our people across the business to get involved in some fantastic fundraising events as we aim to raise £1 million for BBC Children in Need.”

This is the start of an exciting year for Lookers and BBC Children in Need. There will be a packed calendar of events, some daring challenges and plenty of fundraising initiatives to make Pudsey proud while achieving the target of raising £1 million to help disadvantaged children and young people across the UK.
