Children in Need is the BBC's annual telethon, and plenty of activity takes place across the UK to help raise those crucial pennies to help improve the lives of disadvantaged children and young people across the UK.
Every year, this is a charity that Caerphilly County Borough Council really takes to its heart. Generous staff, teachers and school pupils plough their effort into planning fundraising activities.
Another great effort in 2012 our combined efforts across the authority raised in excess of £15,951.33 for Children in Need through taking part in a wide variety of activities.
Fundraising antics featured a charity quiz, dress down and fancy dress days, cake sales, Woman vs. Food challenges, sponsored dance sessions, raffles and auctions galore.
In 2011 activities included spotty-themed dress down days, 5-a-side tag rugby tournament, pool tournament, a Pudsey Race, Climb for Children In Need, fitness challenge which saw staff take part in a 1 mile rowing or cycling challenge at Heolddu Leisure Centre.
