Buddies Do children In Need

Buddies Pet Insurance - Children In NeedEach year, staff from call centres throughout the UK volunteer take donation calls during the BBC Children in Need live Appeal Show.

When the Buddies team found out that their friends over at Legal & General were getting involved, the Buddies team were quick to join them.

Members of the Buddies team joined Legal & General staff at their offices in Birmingham to take calls from the general public during the seven-hour telephone frenzy.

The volunteers took calls from viewers during the show which went on to raise £50.5 million on the night.

As well as taking calls, both teams took part in various fundraising activities, such as an adult ball pit, ‘Hungry Hippos’ championships, auctions and more.

‘We had a fab evening and spoke to some amazing people. The morale was really high, and it was great to be involved. Our call centre alone raised over £32,000.’ Says Buddies team member Leanne.
