The money raised by The Big Night In will be split between Comic Relief and Children in Need and will go on to support local charities and projects in the UK, so they can continue to provide vital emergency support.
There will be more demand than ever for support from local charities. This includes making sure people are safe from harm, mentally healthy and with access to food, warmth and shelter; as well as helping people stay connected, active and positive through these extraordinary times.
The Big Bike In
Endurance athlete and Breakfast presenter Louise Minchin is going to ride 100 miles inside on her static bike to support the BBC’s The Big Night In Appeal for those affected by coronavirus.
Pauline Baker our Vice Chair of the St Luke’s Residents group is going to cycle on her exercise bike in support of this appeal.
She will definitely not manage 100 miles, but is determined to do her best until totally exhausted.
I will let you all know tomorrow how many miles she actually managed.
