Children across the UK need your help

With the continuing pandemic, thousands of children and young people have faced another hugely testing year. 


Children with illnesses have struggled to get the treatment they need. Others have missed out on opportunities to learn new skills and socialise. And charities have found it hard to raise funds for their work supporting young people.


At HSBC UK, we're proud to support BBC Children in Need as they seek to open up a new world of opportunity. A place where everyone has access to financial resources. And where the UK's vulnerable children can get the help they need.


With your generous support, together we can get there.

When is BBC Children in Need Appeal Night?

Friday 19 November on BBC One

Tune in for a whole evening of entertainment, with celebrities singing, dancing and doing all sorts of fun things to raise money. Donate today, and you can make a difference to a young person's life.

How will your donation help?

Vital support for children across the UK

Your money will help children and young people who are dealing with a range of disadvantages, including poverty, illness and trauma. Anything you give will make a difference to these young people's lives.

What we're doing to lend a hand

Pass the Pudsey

As always, we'll be helping colleagues and customers to support the fundraising effort. And from September to November, we'll be embarking on a relay race with a twist. 


In the run up to BBC Children in Need Appeal Night, we'll be passing a Pudsey bear from branch to branch, raising money as we go.

Helping young people make sense of money

This year, we're also continuing our work with BBC Children in Need, running a financial education programme that will help thousands of children.


This initiative is designed to help improve the financial literacy of vulnerable children and young people across the UK. Teaching money skills that should serve them well for years to come.
