Pudsey & Cardiff Blues 'Scrum Together'

29th October 2015

BBC Children in Need's 2015 appeal is revving up and players from Cardiff Blues are asking people across the region to 'Be a Hero' and get fundraising for the Charity

As this year’s BBC Children in Need appeal draws closer, iconic mascot Pudsey paid a visit to Cardiff Blues training ground, to meet with players Kristian Dacey, Josh Navidi, Lloyd Williams and Chris Dicomidis. The Pro 12 league team are encouraging fans to ‘Be a Hero’ for BBC Children in Need this year and show their support for the charity.

Cardiff Blues’ Hooker, Kristian Dacey said: “It is great to have Pudsey here with us at Cardiff Blues today and we are delighted to be supporting BBC Children in Need this year. We were all really impressed with Pudsey’s skills on the rugby pitch, who would have thought Pudsey would be such a natural with a rugby ball!”
There are plenty of ways to get involved, whether you want to organise a charity rugby match, put on your walking boots to ramble across the countryside, dress up as your childhood hero, put on a quiz or put on a bake sale, your support will help make a positive change to the lives of disadvantaged children and young people across the UK.

BBC Children in Need currently funds 18 projects working with children and young people across the region
to a value of £1.2million, including projects such as ‘BulliesOut’ that helps young people who have been affected by bullying and Bobath Children’s Therapy Centre.

BBC Children in Need will return to screens on Friday 13th November on BBC One. The official fundraising pack is available for download from and is packed with ideas to help the public with their fundraising efforts, plus lots of exclusive content from the Charity’s celebrity friends. To date the Great British public has raised over £790 million for children and young people across the UK and the Charity is calling on people to once again pull out the stops and to help raise money to change young lives!
