Doing our eco bit for Children In Need

It’s Children In Need time again! The annual event when lots of people go around making a fool of themselves for a good cause.

Here are a couple of Children in Need facts to get you in the spirit:

1.)    The BBC’s first broadcast appeal for children was a five-minute radio programme on Christmas Day in 1927. It raised £1,143 18s 3d and the proceeds were shared with four prominent children’s charities.

2.)    Pudsey made his television debut in 1985. He was designed by Joanna Ball, who named him after the West Yorkshire town where she was born.

Check out our top 5 Eco Friendly Children in Need fundraising ideas:

1. Pay to go to work in fancy dress as an endangered animal– who will dress up as the most obscure and endangered animal!?

2. Colour your hair spotty with vegetable inks.

3. Fine anyone at work a £1 if they don’t recycle their recyclable rubbish

4. A Sponsored hop to work. See photo of Jimbo hopping into Industrial estate all the way from SW3. Great effort Jimbo!

5. Get people to for you to go Veggie for a day (we didn’t enjoy this one in the BecoOffice).

As well as getting involved with some of these fundraising ideas, we have shown our spots by donating ten percent of the retail price of every BecoPotty for the rest of November period. So you can buy your BecoPotty now at www.becothings.com  and be safe in the knowledge that you are not only buying eco, but also helping a great cause!
