This years Children in Need event took place on 13/11/2015. This year was their best year yet as they raised a record breaking £37million. Stars such as One Direction, Dame Helen Mirren, Martin Freeman, Selena Gomez, Years and Years, Ellie Goulding and Sir Tom Jones joined the show to help the fundraising. This years theme was to be a super hero for the day, and with raising that much money everybody was a hero! Many groups across the UK got together and held their own mini fundraising events, these were put on by many schools across the country, choirs came together to sing and raise money, local businesses and even the larger businesses came together to do something for the cause. Cotyso Studios donated £12,000 worth of vouchers for local fundraisers to use at their events, these events varied from bake sales, fun days and pub quizzes where bands played! One event even broke the world record for dancing for 24 hours, this was done by James White a Dance Teacher from Harrogate. He committed to a 24 hour non-stop dance marathon which started at 2pm on Friday November 13 and finished at 4pm on Saturday November 14. They raised a fantastic £5,000 for Children In Need!
