Children in Need at Royal William Yard
This year’s event saw a record final Children in Need total of £46m raised for great causes; at the Yard, Plymouth did it’s bit by hosting a spectacular evening with fire dancers, light jacket performers, stilt walkers, wall runners and aerial dancers Yskynna all performing for the cameras.
There was also a night market and projections within the Yard and Factory Cooperage put on by the University of Plymouth.
And not forgetting the arrival of VIP guest Pudsey by an offshore raiding craft driven by Royal Marines based at HMNB Devonport.
In total, events like this helped £1.8m of the total Children in Need efforts come from the South West region.
I’m really proud that we were able to play such a big part in this year’s Children in Need success story.
