Schools, businesses and organisations in Suffolk and Essex are raising money today for the BBC Children in Need’s 2017 appeal.

From fancy dress, to cake sales and sponsored challenges, charitable thousands of fundraisers are doing their bit for the cause.

The appeal show will take place tonight on BBC One at 7.30pm, with Tess Daly, Graham Norton, Mel Giedroyc, Ade Adepitan and Rochelle and Marvin Humes hosting.

Strictly’s Craig Revel Harwood and cast will open the night with a performance from hit West End musical, Annie. Six former Blue Peter presenters will be taking to the Strictly Come Dancing ballroom, where they’ll be competing to win the Pudsey Glitterball trophy.
