Children in Need is back in 2022 with its annual fundraising night. The BBC hosts a yearly telethon that aims to raise money for the Children in Need charity. The first telethon was broadcast in 1980, so the annual event has been running for over forty years.

As viewers watch on while celebrities join in to help raise money for charity, they may be wondering where and how they can donate themselves. For anyone wishing to get involved and wanting to bag themselves a pair of Children in Need Pudsey ears, too, let’s find out more about where to get them and how much they are.
