Celebs across the UK have put their #HatsOn for BBC Children in Need ahead of this Friday night’s TV fundraising extravaganza.
In an extended programme, The Countryfile Ramble for BBC Children in Need, Matt Baker, Steve Brown, John Craven, Ellie Harrison, Adam Henson and Anita Rani headed out on their fourth charity ramble. The programme that aired on BBC One late last month showed the presenters putting their #HatsOn and visiting various locations across the UK. They were joined by members of the public as well as inspirational children and young people who have been supported by BBC Children in Need funded projects.
Since the Countryfile Ramble began in 2015, nearly 3,000 people have joined the presenters on their rambles across the UK, collectively racking up more than 8,250 miles. The team have raised £4.1million for the charity since 2015.
Blacks Outdoor have created the bespoke Countryfile ramble bobble hat as worn by presenters in aid of Children in Need. It forms part of a nationwide campaign to encourage people to organise sponsored rambles and raise money to support disadvantaged children and young people across the UK.
Joining the Countryfile team, a whole host of celebs have shown their support and put their #HatsOn for #BBCCiN. So far Bear Grylls has taken to Twitter to don the hat, whilst Jessica Wright posted a glam snap of herself on Instagram. They have been joined by radio and television presenter Jenni Falconer and Welsh television presenter Matt Johnsons, amongst others.
The BBC Countryfile Ramble hat is available to buy for £7 from Blacks stores nationwide, subject to stock availability. At least 50% of each sale will be donated to BBC Children in Need.
Blacks CEO Lee Bagnall said:
“We are thrilled to once again be supporting BBC Children in Need. The charity is hugely important, and through our partnership, we aim to raise vital funds and awareness by encouraging people to get outdoors and ramble with one of our special ramble hats.”
“We want to encourage as many people as possible from all walks of life to come together and ramble wherever they like – whether it’s countryside, cities, or towns. We urge supporters of this activity to spread the message far and wide by taking to social media and sharing a picture of them in the hat using #HatsOn for #BBCCiN”.
Children in Need 2018 airs on BBC One this Friday 16th November at 7:30 pm. Are you going to be watching? Let us know @CelebMix!
