This year, why not Do Something Different to raise funds for BBC Children in Need? The following are suggestions for establishing group and individual records specific to your setting. You might even get yourselves into the book of Guinness World Records!

Champion story listeners

Help the children to raise funds by becoming ‘Champion story listeners’. Make a list of the children’s favourite stories from available books in your setting. Explain to parents, regular visitors, students and older children about the ‘Sponsored story read’ that will take place over a designated week. Ask for volunteers to read a story and set up a rota, making sure that the list is long enough. Add extra book titles if necessary. When the stories are read, put a tick beside them on the list. At the end of the week, count up the ticks and collect sponsor money, for example, sponsoring 5p a story would raise £1 for every 20 stories read.
