A 'Perfect Day' with Newcross: Children in Need 2018

children in need 2018

In November this year, Newcross employees from all over the UK united in song for this year's Children in Need fundraising attempt, a music video featuring Lou Reed's 'Perfect Day' and the teams' real vocals - no miming was allowed! 

Head of Development, Mark Story, and his band, The Broken Men, provided the accompanying backing track and the Marketing team stitched the footage together. The whole song was recreated by Newcross. We've managed to raise £287 so far, but it's not too late to donate. Find our JustGiving page here and donate what you can!

What do Children in Need do?

You've likely heard of Children in Need before. 

Children in Need provide grants to projects in the UK which focus on children and young people who are disadvantaged. They are local to people in all corners of the UK and support small and large organisations which empower children and extend their life choices.

The charity currently supports 2,400 projects all across the UK. The projects they fund help children facing a range of disadvantages for example poverty and deprivation; children who have been the victims of abuse or neglect or disabled young people.
