A big thank you to Children In Need from Harmless for funding our young people self harm and suicide prevention support services.

Tonight (Friday 16th November 2018) sees the return of BBC Children in Need’s appeal show – an annual event which looks to raise money that will be used to make a real difference to the lives of disadvantaged children across the UK.

The show kicks off with a performance from the cast of the West End musicals School of Rock and Everybody’s Talking About Jamie, before the The Children’s Choir sing The Greatest Showman hit A Million Dreams in unison with children’s choirs across the nation in moving scenes.

Graham Norton and Mel Giedroyc then take the reins, overseeing a performance from the EastEnders cast putting on a spectacle in Albert Square – including Jessie Wallace belting out Frozen’s Let It Go.

Little Mix, Alfie Boe and Sheridan Smith will also be on hand to give some Children in Need project workers a surprise as well as much more!

Here is a short testimony written by a young person who has received support services from Harmless funded by CIN:

“Joining Harmless a few month ago, I couldn’t speak about my feelings, but with all the support I have had I am back to the person I wanted to be. Everyone has been absolutely amazing and helped me get through every hurdle and difficulty that has come my way. I have learnt different types of stress relief techniques and how to deal with stress in any situation. Brilliant team and I’m lucky and thankful for everything they have done for me.”

Everyone at Harmless would like to thank Children in Need and their wonderful team for the continued support that they have given to us and the children and young people that access our support service(s). We wish everyone all the best and hope that they have another record breaking evening.
