Lisa Faulkner joins BT and Pudsey Bear to encourage the public to ‘Chat for Children...

Lisa Faulkner and BBC Children in Need mascot Pudsey Bear have urged  people to take part in BT Chat for Children. Lisa and Pudsey Bear made their calls to friends and family in the red BT phone box in Parliament Square, London.

On Friday 12th November, BT will donate 1p for every BT landline and phone box phone call made and 25p for every call to BT's Directory Enquiry Service 118500* to BBC Children in Need as part of BT’s Chat for Children initiative to raise money for some of the most disadvantaged children right here in the UK. Last year thanks to the creativity and commitment of the British public, BBC Children in Need raised a record breaking total of £39 million, which is hard at work changing young lives for the better.

UK actress and recent celebrity Master chef winner Lisa Faulkner, Pudsey and best friend Blush launched the appeal by making some calls from a classic red phone box in Parliament Square and other London locations.

Lisa Faulkner commented: “BBC Children in Need does some fantastic work and I’m really excited to be helping BT raise awareness of BT Chat for Children on 12th November. I’ll be giving my family and friends a call on the 12th November for BT’s Chat for Children and I hope you will too!”

Non BT customers can still show their support by making a call from a BT payphone or calling BT’s Directory Enquiry Service 118 500 from any UK landline or mobile.
