Hello and welcome to best of

Children in Need 2017 from here at

0:00:260:00:32

the Folk and Transport Museum in

County Down.

This was our venue for

0:00:320:00:39

Friday night - the music, the laughs

and everyone's favourite bear -

0:00:390:00:44

Pudsey!

We have a packed programme.

Take a look at this.

How you never

0:00:440:00:50

let us down - all the fun of the

fund-raising you have organised.

We

0:00:500:00:56

will have you dancing to the latest

singing from the Carter family,

0:00:560:01:03

Jake.

And you won't want to miss our

choir, 183 children from five

0:01:030:01:10

Northern Ireland schools who have

worked to sing you a classic song.

0:01:100:01:15

And everyone's hard work is for one

thing - Children in Need. We will be

0:01:150:01:20

inviting you into some of the local

projects your donations support.

0:01:200:01:28

Children in Need could not survive

without your generosity, so thank

0:01:280:01:31

you. What better way to kick off the

show than with some of our

0:01:310:01:36

fund-raisers.

# She's on my mind!

0:01:360:01:48

# She's on my mind, she's on my mind

# I can't sleep at night if she

0:02:170:02:31

ain't by my side # I can't sleep at

night if she ain't by my side # My

0:02:310:02:41

friends say she's a keeper, but I

let her go.

0:02:410:02:49

Is a new Carter in town, he is Jake

and he joined us to perform his new

0:04:070:04:14

single.

0:04:140:04:15

# She's got my heartbeat # It'

Friday night and we're still talking

0:04:270:04:35

# I turn around and see her walking

# There is no one but us in this

0:04:350:04:43

crowded room # So come on, girl, put

your hand in mine # We can dance, we

0:04:430:04:51

could go all night! # Come a little

closer # I just want to hold you # #

0:04:510:05:07

Makes me want to kiss you # Put your

hands all over # The music's getting

0:05:070:05:19

slower # It's time # I just want to

kiss you. # It's getting late we

0:05:190:05:28

should take us back to my place #

You lead the way, we could skip

0:05:280:05:36

first base, that's what she said to

my favourite tune # So come on girl,

0:05:360:05:42

put your hand in mine # We could

dance, we could go all night # Come

0:05:420:05:53

on a little closer # I just want to

hold you # The smell of you # Makes

0:05:530:06:05

me want to kiss you # Put your hands

all over # The music's getting

0:06:050:06:14

stronger # It's time to make my move

# I just want to kiss you # We don't

0:06:140:06:19

have to take this slow # Oh # Let's

go some place no one knows #

0:06:190:06:43

# Come a little closer # I just want

to hold you # The smell of your

0:06:480:06:59

perfume, it makes me want to kiss

you # Put your hands all over # The

0:06:590:07:08

music's getting slower # It's time

to make me move # I just want to

0:07:080:07:13

kiss you!

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE.

Thank you.

We will have another song

0:07:130:07:23

from Jake later. Now someone who

knows how important your donations

0:07:230:07:27

are, the boss of Children in Need

charity and I grabbed a quick chat

0:07:270:07:33

with her on Friday. Great fun but

the money makes a real difference,

0:07:330:07:38

tell us about Children in Need

Northern Ireland?

Children in Need

0:07:380:07:42

has a very simple vision - it wants

to enable children to reach their

0:07:420:07:47

potential. We have 200 projects

taking place across Northern

0:07:470:07:53

Ireland, reaching upwards of 55,000

young people and to a value of £10

0:07:530:07:56

million. The work is very targeted.

It is incredible. It is

0:07:560:08:02

wide-reaching and does make a

difference in children's lives.

Were

0:08:020:08:06

you bowled over by the efforts of

fund-raisers?

Yes we had loads of

0:08:060:08:14

children come through Broadcasting

House, but to hear what children

0:08:140:08:17

from the age of three upwards are

doing for Children in Need bowls me

0:08:170:08:22

over. The people of Northern Ireland

have been incredible. We have had

0:08:220:08:25

hundreds of children head to school,

they have pajamas on, their spots

0:08:250:08:32

on, they have baked cakes. There has

been incredible fund-raising taking

0:08:320:08:36

place. Whatever it was, people did

their thing.

Last year we got just

0:08:360:08:42

over £950,000. What do you hope for

this year?

We are always blown away

0:08:420:08:51

by the generosity of people across

Northern Ireland, it would be great

0:08:510:08:56

to reach the £900,000 again. But we

are pleased whether it is £5 or 20%,

0:08:560:09:01

just do your thing and we will be

very grateful and put it to good

0:09:010:09:05

use.

Fantastic. Thank you. Fingers

crossed.

Yes thank you.

Your

0:09:050:09:13

donations make a difference to

projects across Northern Ireland

0:09:130:09:15

like this one just outside Belfast.

0:09:150:09:20

We have been boxing here since 1983

and it has gone from strength to

0:09:280:09:33

strength. From 2012 we have become

something different, more than a

0:09:330:09:38

boxing club. We brought together a

marriage of sport and education to

0:09:380:09:43

tackle some of the issue that are

facing this community and

0:09:430:09:47

particularly young people in the

community. Young people involved

0:09:470:09:50

with a lot of Social Services with

foster placements and face complex

0:09:500:09:58

drug and alcohol issues. The this

programme tries to engage parents

0:09:580:10:02

more in their child's education. So

we have a big emphasis on trying to

0:10:020:10:08

raise the bar in terms of

aspirations and put in projects to

0:10:080:10:13

help young people achieve their

potential at school. The breakfast

0:10:130:10:21

club is a saviour for parents who

struggle to provide a nutritious

0:10:210:10:27

breakfast each morning.

We are able

to find this each morning. Some of

0:10:270:10:32

the young people never knew what it

was to have a good breakfast and

0:10:320:10:36

thousand they come in each morning,

which is really good.

It has been a

0:10:360:10:44

real success story, he came from

Limerick, spoke with a different

0:10:440:10:49

accent, moved into a new community

and had no support networks, he came

0:10:490:10:54

to school and didn't engage the way

the teachers wanted him to.

I

0:10:540:11:01

started school and got bullied, got

kicked out of class, hit stuff and

0:11:010:11:07

hit people. When I came to the club,

I was about six stone heavier, I

0:11:070:11:14

smoked, I did a lot of stuff I

shouldn't have. And just wasn't the

0:11:140:11:20

person that's sitting here today. I

was completely different. I was...

0:11:200:11:25

Angrier and more upset and more

violent. I calmed down and started

0:11:250:11:33

making friends and opened myself

more and started getting into boxing

0:11:330:11:37

and getting into the gym. I haven't

got into a fight in a year and a

0:11:370:11:49

half, I can control my anger and my

emotions. I got all the

0:11:490:11:56

qualifications to start to be a

Belfast Med for the boxing Academy.

0:11:560:12:04

They believed me, so I believed in

myself. Co-I could do it.

Those

0:12:040:12:09

success stories make we want to get

up every day and come to this job.

0:12:090:12:14

We took a different approach, more a

youth work approach. We have smaller

0:12:140:12:19

class sizes. We see that benefits

them in terms of their learning.

I

0:12:190:12:25

like coming, because you could come

in here and maybe drop off and go to

0:12:250:12:32

the gym.

Three, four.

You can come

half 1 and they help with your

0:12:320:12:39

homework and you can go to the gym

and do boxing and learn new things

0:12:390:12:44

for boxing and get fit.

When I

started coming, I felt it was a safe

0:12:440:12:49

place for me, so I could come and

speak to Amy and Paul and the

0:12:490:12:54

leaders and it helped me build up my

confidence a lot. I think it is

0:12:540:12:59

important that Children in Need

keeps getting funded, because others

0:12:590:13:05

should be able to come and see the

impact it has on all the kids'

0:13:050:13:09

lives.

This is not a job to me, this

is something I love doing, helping

0:13:090:13:15

young people achieve their potential

and through me and my staff and the

0:13:150:13:20

funding from Children in Need it has

made a massive impact on young

0:13:200:13:24

people's futures and hopefully that

can continue.

0:13:240:13:36

That's just one of the many groups

here in Northern Ireland where your

0:13:380:13:43

donations really make a difference.

So thank you. To keep them going,

0:13:430:13:47

year's Children in Need? To find out

0:15:070:15:20

# Such a sky you never did see

0:15:380:15:40

# There must be someone

0:15:400:15:42

# I'm getting married in the morning

# All alone

0:16:550:16:58

# I walk with him till morning

0:16:580:17:05

# Without him

0:17:050:17:07

# I feel his arms around me

0:17:070:17:12

# And when I lose my way

I close my eyes

0:17:120:17:17

# And he has found me

0:17:170:17:20

# I love him

0:17:200:17:22

# But every day I'm learning

0:17:220:17:27

# All my life

I've only been pretending

0:17:270:17:34

# Without me

His world will go on turning

0:17:340:17:40

# A world that's full of happiness

that I have never known

0:17:400:17:48

# I love him

0:17:480:17:50

APPLAUSE

CHEERING

0:20:330:20:39

Smashing stuff from the cast of

Eastenders. And from one talented

0:20:390:20:43

bunch to another. Our very own

superstars. It's the Children in

0:20:430:20:48

Need Northern Ireland choir. We

can't thank them enough for all

0:20:480:20:50

their hard work putting together

this year's special song. Earlier

0:20:500:20:54

this month we sent our cameras and

Pudsey out to see them all

0:20:540:20:58

rehearsing. Well, to Erne integrated

College, this is where we've been

0:20:580:21:06

rehearsing, come and have a listen.

# Somewhere Over The Rainbow way up

0:21:060:21:13

# Rehearsals are going well, there

0:21:130:21:19

are still bit of harmonies we have

to work on but so far they are

0:21:190:21:22

really good.

Welcome to Ballyclare.

# Somewhere Over The Rainbow way up

0:21:220:21:34

# Dares overland that I heard of

0:21:340:21:38

ones in the lullaby -- there is a

land.

APPLAUSE

0:21:380:21:47

It's really fun because we go to

different competitions and it

0:21:470:21:53

doesn't matter if you win or lose,

it's just really fun to do.

The

0:21:530:21:57

thing I'm most looking forward to is

singing for the charity and people

0:21:570:22:01

in need, just to sing for all my

friends.

Welcome to choir rehearsals

0:22:010:22:08

at Regent house School.

And the

dreams that you dare to dream really

0:22:080:22:15

do come true.

It's been a dream of

mine since I was in peaceniks,

0:22:150:22:25

because I watched every year since I

was small, I wondered however run

0:22:250:22:28

got in and what it was like to be

their live on TV.

Just getting out

0:22:280:22:31

there and singing, I might see

Pudsey or anything...

0:22:310:22:40

# Dreams that you dare to dream

really do come true #.

0:22:400:22:48

Welcome to holy family primary in

Derry. Jedinak I watched Children in

0:22:480:22:56

Need every year and I'm finally

going to get my chance.

Rehearsals

0:22:560:22:59

are going good.

Welcome to killing

she primary

0:22:590:23:08

I'm really excited about getting to

go on TV and seeing all the other

0:23:160:23:20

choirs to see how good they are.

It's just fun to get together with

0:23:200:23:30

all my friends and just sing.

There

is going to be lots of different

0:23:300:23:40

choirs, there's going to be, I

think, and I'm praying there's going

0:23:400:23:44

to be celebrities as well.

Northern

Ireland will be better because we

0:23:440:23:51

are the best people.

We'll be the

best because we practice so hard I

0:23:510:23:55

tried our best.

The Children in Need

Northern Ireland choir are going to

0:23:550:23:58

be the best out of all the choirs,

we're going to smash it.

Later on,

0:23:580:24:05

we'll bring you the fruits of their

labour with a stunning performance

0:24:050:24:09

of somewhere Over The Rainbow.

First, more from our fundraisers.

0:24:090:24:14

In the arcade game Pac man what

colour to the ghosts have to be for

0:24:420:24:46

Pac man to be able to eat them?

0:24:460:24:52

Three, two, one... Go!

0:24:590:25:05

Thank you very much for braving the

elements and coming out, it's very

0:25:240:25:29

much appreciated, Pudsey especially

appreciate it.

0:25:290:25:33

Pudsey, Pudsey, Pudsey!

0:26:170:26:19

Let's take a look back at some

Friday's spectacular show.

0:26:360:26:42

# I choose me

0:27:120:27:15

# And I know

that's selfish, love

0:27:150:27:17

# You are a dream

0:27:170:27:19

# And I can't thank you enough

0:27:190:27:23

# But I give another

piece of me away

0:27:230:27:27

# Every waking day that I'm with you

0:27:270:27:32

# Am I a monster?

0:27:320:27:35

# What will your family think of me?

0:27:350:27:37

# They brought me in

0:27:370:27:39

# They helped me out with everything

0:27:390:27:43

# But I give a little

piece of me away

0:27:430:27:46

# Every single day

0:27:460:27:52

# So I pick up the pieces

0:27:520:27:55

# I get on the midnight

train

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE.

0:30:220:30:27

Your efforts, donations and kindness

do bring light into the darkness for

0:30:300:30:35

many children right across Northern

Ireland. Children like Noah and

0:30:350:30:40

Gracie.

Doing well Noah.

Looking at

him, you wouldn't have thought there

0:30:400:30:49

was anything wrong with him. He

maybe had an unsteady gait. But

0:30:490:30:55

apart from that he was perfectly

normal.

Eight years ago Noah was

0:30:550:31:05

diagnosed with a rare form of a life

limited knew logical disease that

0:31:050:31:20

has affected every part of his life.

I think he would have been an

0:31:200:31:26

athletic young boy and sociable.

I

could imagine him coming in,

0:31:260:31:30

throwing the football boots down and

those normal things that you just

0:31:300:31:36

really take for granted.

0:31:360:31:47

We watch Noah and he is starting to

lose his abilities.

0:31:550:32:09

Noah's sister, Gracie,

has witnessed her brother's decline.

0:32:150:32:17

As Noah's condition deteriorates

and he gets worse, it

0:32:170:32:19

affects our whole family.

0:32:190:32:20

Instead of moving towards life,

you're moving towards...

0:32:200:32:22

you know, this...

0:32:220:32:25

death.

0:32:250:32:31

A year after Noah was diagnosed,

our social worker said

0:32:310:32:34

to us about a hospice,

Horizon House.

0:32:340:32:38

I think initially we were like

petrified, weren't we?

0:32:380:32:40

It was just the word "hospice"

and what that meant.

0:32:400:32:43

We did go to Horizon House.

0:32:430:32:46

And it was just such

a fun place to be.

0:32:460:32:51

Horizon House is supported

by your donations and for the past

0:32:510:32:53

seven years, they have been

by Noah's side, giving him

0:32:530:32:56

and his family vital support,

a sense of normality and most

0:32:560:33:00

of all fun.

0:33:000:33:06

THEY LAUGH

Noah!

0:33:060:33:07

Get her!

0:33:070:33:08

Get her!

0:33:080:33:09

Put it down.

0:33:090:33:11

The nurses are amazing.

0:33:110:33:13

And it's fun.

0:33:130:33:15

The children just do so much

together when they are there,

0:33:150:33:18

you know, they love it.

0:33:180:33:23

Gracie's been going for as long

as Noah's been going.

0:33:230:33:30

Leukodystrophy is

a genetic condition.

0:33:300:33:35

And a year after Noah's diagnosis,

the family discovered

0:33:350:33:37

that Gracie had it, too.

0:33:370:33:44

When we found out Gracie

had it, it was just

0:33:440:33:46

devastating all over again.

0:33:460:33:49

It's a very, very cruel disease.

0:33:490:33:52

She's watched Noah, so for her...

0:33:520:33:58

..to be watching that,

there's no words to describe

0:33:580:34:00

the heartache that you feel.

0:34:000:34:06

We had so many hopes and dreams

for what our family life

0:34:060:34:09

was going to be like before.

0:34:090:34:11

You know, you think about things

that people take for granted,

0:34:110:34:14

like your children going

to university, meeting a wee

0:34:140:34:16

girlfriend or boyfriend,

getting married and...

0:34:160:34:23

Yeah...

0:34:230:34:27

That's just...the kind of life that

you wanted for them.

0:34:270:34:36

Horizon House is one of many groups

in Northern Ireland, where your

0:34:450:34:49

donations do make a difference. So

thank you. To keep this great work

0:34:490:34:54

going, why not doing your thing for

Children in Need. To find out more

0:34:540:34:59

and to donate go to the web-site.

You do make a difference to

0:34:590:35:08

children's lives so thank you. We at

the BBC can't can you to do your

0:35:080:35:12

thing without doing it ourselves.

Last week five BBC presenters

0:35:120:35:17

squared up in our own team and put

their eggs in one basket for a

0:35:170:35:22

cracking challenge.

Welcome to the

omelette challenge and we have

0:35:220:35:31

thrown them the challenge of a

two-egg omelette. And Michael's

0:35:310:35:36

going to judge it and he will know

when enough's enough when tasting

0:35:360:35:42

these.

A wee practice. You did not?

Karen said I had thrown down the

0:35:420:35:50

spatula.

I think he is trying to

psyche us out.

We had a shell.

They

0:35:500:36:01

were excellent.

You can use two

hands. Listen to that noise. Try not

0:36:010:36:11

to let any of it stick.

She is going

to give us our time, Nicola is going

0:36:110:36:22

to tell us when you're finished.

No.

Take a bit longer.

There is about 10

0:36:220:36:32

seconds difference between an

omelette and scrambled eggs.

Done!

0:36:320:36:41

Spillage, Jenny, note the spillage.

Come on egg, cook

clam! That will

0:36:460:36:57

do.

Oh!

In the pan. Knoll, in the

pan. I wouldn't advice.

What does he

0:36:570:37:09

know?

0:37:090:37:17

A bit heavier on the seasoning than

even me. Oh, yeah.

That is it.

Go!

0:37:220:37:37

Oh!

Look at us go! All right.

It is

not Strictly, you know that.

Not yet

0:37:370:37:48

it's not.

You have got to go your

own.

I'm all about taste not haste.

0:37:480:37:56

All about taste.

This one's for you.

With all my love.

This is the

0:37:560:38:03

stunning trophy for the winner of

the omelette challenge.

I didn't

0:38:030:38:07

want to beat Noel, because I look up

to him.

Very high in the seasoning.

0:38:070:38:12

That was one minute 26, that was the

slowest. One minute 23. Looks quite

0:38:120:38:20

a nice colour. One minute 21

seconds. It is quite well seasoned.

0:38:200:38:28

This one is one 18 and looks quite

nice. This is the best cooked.

0:38:280:38:40

I think it will have to go to one

17, because of the speed.

0:38:440:38:58

Congratulations.

Well done.

Well I'm

not sure I would have sampled any of

0:38:580:39:09

those, but thank you to everyone for

taking part. Now, the treats just

0:39:090:39:15

keep on coming. Don't they Barra?

Are you there?

I'm here. A double

0:39:150:39:22

treat from Friday night with not one

but two sneaky peaks at up coming

0:39:220:39:28

Christmas specials.

Enjoy Peter

Kay's Christmas Car Share and Doctor

0:39:280:39:36

Who.

Let's get out, I lookry doibg

Lues.

-- ridiculous.

0:39:360:39:55

Car Share is back,

but not as you know it.

0:39:560:39:58

# Ever fallen in love with...

0:39:580:40:00

# We decided to try

something special.

0:40:000:40:01

What would it be like if we filmed

a whole journey without a script,

0:40:010:40:05

just making it up and basically

seeing what happened.

0:40:050:40:07

# ..you shouldn't have

fallen in love with...

0:40:070:40:09

#

I can do Heather Small.

0:40:090:40:10

Go on, then.

0:40:100:40:11

STARTS TO SING CROAKILY

That's Miss Piggy!

0:40:110:40:13

I can't do this any more.

0:40:130:40:20

You might be in for a sur...

0:40:200:40:22

My Tardis!

0:40:220:40:23

Look at my Tardis!

0:40:230:40:24

This is impossible.

0:40:240:40:25

Have I been burgled?

0:40:250:40:26

It's... But it's...

0:40:260:40:27

Hideous!

0:40:270:40:28

..bigger on the inside

than it is on the outside.

0:40:280:40:31

You know, I thought it probably was.

0:40:310:40:33

Glad it's not just me.

0:40:330:40:34

What is this place?

This place is,

or ought to be,

0:40:340:40:36

my Tardis.

0:40:360:40:41

Technically, that is your Tardis.

0:40:410:40:45

It's about 70 feet that way. See?

0:40:450:40:48

Always remember where you parked.

It's going to come up a lot.

0:40:480:40:51

Is this madness?

0:40:510:40:52

Am I going mad?

0:40:520:40:54

Madness?

0:40:540:40:57

Well, you're an officer from

World War I at the South Pole

0:40:570:41:00

being pursued by an alien

through frozen time.

0:41:000:41:01

Mmm.

0:41:010:41:03

Madness was never this good.

0:41:030:41:04

World War One.

0:41:040:41:07

Judging by the uniform, yes.

0:41:070:41:09

Yes, but...

0:41:090:41:11

What do you mean, one?

0:41:110:41:16

Oh, sorry. Spoilers.

0:41:160:41:18

Enough of this!

0:41:180:41:19

Who are you?

0:41:190:41:22

Er...you know who I am.

0:41:220:41:24

You knew the moment you saw me.

0:41:240:41:26

I'd say stop being an idiot,

but I kind of know what's coming.

0:41:260:41:29

I assure you, I do not have

the faintest idea who you are.

0:41:290:41:33

Well...I know who you are.

0:41:330:41:37

Is anyone going to explain

what's going on?

0:41:370:41:40

Snap.

0:41:400:41:45

You are me?

0:41:460:41:48

No.

0:41:480:41:49

No!

Yes.

0:41:490:41:51

Yes. I'm very much afraid so.

0:41:510:41:54

Do I become...you?

0:41:540:41:58

Well, there's a few false starts,

but you get there in the end.

0:41:580:42:01

But I thought...

0:42:010:42:05

What?

Well, I assumed

that I'd get...

0:42:050:42:09

..younger.

0:42:090:42:10

I am younger!

0:42:100:42:16

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE. Of course you

will have to wait until Christmas

0:42:180:42:27

for those treats, but you don't have

to wait for another sing from Jake

0:42:270:42:31

Carter. He was having a party with

us on Friday night.

0:42:310:42:36

# From over here

0:43:020:43:12

# In this town

0:45:240:45:37

Thank you.

Jake's new album is out

now. Next, we're off to Mid Ulster

0:45:370:45:49

to a project funded by your

donations. A project with its own

0:45:490:45:54

celebrity friend.

0:45:540:45:57

This is a programme funded by

Children in Need. The project

0:46:050:46:09

operates with up to 20 young people

with ten children with a disability

0:46:090:46:14

and ten children without a

disability. To develop their

0:46:140:46:18

artistic skills. And develop their

communication skills through the

0:46:180:46:21

arts. To remove that stigma that

surrounds disability, and to

0:46:210:46:27

increase understanding for those

children without a disability, what

0:46:270:46:31

is it like to have a disability.

I've been doing this for three

0:46:310:46:36

years. Everybody comes and get

involved. They communicate with

0:46:360:46:43

everybody else and come out of their

shell.

Somewhere they can be

0:46:430:46:48

themselves and express themselves

and with all the creativity and

0:46:480:46:52

communication and confidence, that's

all they need.

I love all the dance.

0:46:520:46:58

My favourite part, I get to dance.

We work with them through drama and

0:46:580:47:08

dance. Music. There's nothing like

it, nothing like it in the Mid

0:47:080:47:12

Ulster area. We are extremely proud

to have been given the fund, to

0:47:120:47:17

deliver a project that does make

such a difference to young people.

I

0:47:170:47:21

like to spend time with my friends,

they make me smile.

They do their

0:47:210:47:27

own drama performances and create

their own pieces, which they then

0:47:270:47:30

perform on stage to family and

friends at the end of the programme.

0:47:300:47:33

Yes!

John has been a good friend of

our organisation for about eight

0:47:330:47:41

years. And we're... That

relationship has grown over the

0:47:410:47:46

years. He's been a huge support. He

really gets everything that we do,

0:47:460:47:53

we try to make a difference, he gets

that. He has great empathy with

0:47:530:47:59

children and young people.

I came

down to work with the kids to give

0:47:590:48:02

them some workshops, musical theatre

workshops,

0:48:020:48:04

them some workshops, musical theatre

workshops, to help develop their

0:48:040:48:06

performance goals.

0:48:060:48:07

workshops, to help develop their

performance goals. And their social

0:48:070:48:09

skills in a way. It is more

inspiring for me to come here than

0:48:090:48:14

it is for them. What they do here is

really unique. Really if everybody

0:48:140:48:24

could come here and spend just one

day, just one day, you would realise

0:48:240:48:30

how important Children in Need and

the funding and the money that is

0:48:300:48:34

given is. A tiny donation goes a

long way in changing a young

0:48:340:48:42

person's life. So please continue to

give. Please.

The difference is that

0:48:420:48:48

we see in the children is massive,

it's not just about a ten or 12 week

0:48:480:48:54

project, it's about the legacy those

children are going to carry on with

0:48:540:48:57

them for the rest of their lives,

which is huge. And for that we're

0:48:570:49:02

so, so to Children in Need. -- so

grateful to Children in Need.

0:49:020:49:10

Now you've met some of the wonderful

young people here. Some of these

0:49:100:49:15

kids may be disabled but they are

very much willing and able to learn,

0:49:150:49:20

to develop, and to grow. So do your

thing for Children in Need. If you

0:49:200:49:26

are willing and able, please pick up

the phone and donate. For more

0:49:260:49:33

information on how to donate, go to

the website. Do your thing.

0:49:330:49:40

Now every year BBC Countryfile

mobilises thousands of ramblers

0:49:430:49:49

across the UK, all walking for

Children in Need. This year John

0:49:490:49:53

Craven met up with our local

Ramblers at one of Northern

0:49:530:49:57

Ireland's most scenic walking

sports. Let's go...

0:49:570:50:03

My ramble took me to the foot of

Northern Ireland's Mourne Mountains,

0:50:040:50:10

to the Castlewellan Forest Park.

More than 1000 acres of glorious

0:50:100:50:14

landscape, perfect for observing

nature. In the shadow of this

0:50:140:50:20

magnificent castle there is a very

special outdoor event taking place.

0:50:200:50:26

Isn't there?

Yes!

The Countryfile

ramble for Children in Need in

0:50:260:50:31

Northern Ireland. Is everybody ready

to ramble? Let's go!

0:50:310:50:35

My ramble is designed to be

accessible to everyone. Starting and

0:50:370:50:42

ending beside the castle, we'll

follow a circular trailer almost two

0:50:420:50:47

and a half miles long around the

estate's rust natural lake. Today's

0:50:470:50:52

Ramblers have joined us from across

Northern Ireland, all walking to

0:50:520:50:56

raise money for charities close to

their hearts.

Pity it has been

0:50:560:51:01

drizzling a bit today.

Where

Northern Irish, this is our

0:51:010:51:05

sunshine, we quite like it.

He's

doing it the easy way, isn't it?

For

0:51:050:51:13

some of our Ramblers, this event is

even more personal. People like

0:51:130:51:20

Ashley Robinson. Children in Need is

helping her through a project 25

0:51:200:51:24

miles away. Hello. Why have you come

on the ramble today?

I felt like I

0:51:240:51:32

needed to be on the ramble. I feel

that it's important for me to do the

0:51:320:51:38

ramble even though I've got special

needs and stuff. Walking does make

0:51:380:51:42

it quite hard, but I'm going fine

and if I need to stop I'll stop.

0:51:420:51:48

Stop if you feel you have too. She

is affected by Williams syndrome, a

0:51:480:51:53

genetic condition which can lead to

medical problems including

0:51:530:51:56

cardiovascular disease and it can

also cause learning difficulties.

0:51:560:52:01

She is helped by the yes programme

won by the YMCA. She and her friends

0:52:010:52:07

from the group have all come along

to join in the ramble.

0:52:070:52:11

The programme is funded by Children

in Need, it gives young people with

0:52:160:52:20

special needs and learning

difficulties the chance to take part

0:52:200:52:24

in activities they wouldn't normally

have access to. With Williams

0:52:240:52:29

syndrome, something like canoeing

would be impossible for Ashley

0:52:290:52:32

without their support.

Being on the

canoes today was very fun. It was

0:52:320:52:43

unreal. As you could probably see,

my strength with the canoe was not

0:52:430:52:49

good. The paddling was difficult.

People with Williams syndrome have

0:52:490:52:56

to deal with their tiredness.

The

programme not only get them

0:52:560:53:01

outdoors, it also provides life

skills and promotes independence.

0:53:010:53:06

Youth worker Johnny Hill sees

first-hand how it transforms lives.

0:53:060:53:10

It offers respite for the family but

aside from that it's a great place

0:53:100:53:14

for the young people to learn and do

new things, to try new activities,

0:53:140:53:19

do stuff they don't always get the

opportunity to do.

Ashley's

0:53:190:53:24

condition isn't just physical, it

also affects her social

0:53:240:53:27

interactions, leaving her unable to

go out alone. A safe space to mix

0:53:270:53:31

with others of her own age is

critical.

Big smiles! The changes

0:53:310:53:36

I've seen in her, she's getting more

involved in different things. She's

0:53:360:53:41

so social, she's one of the people

who travels around the centre and is

0:53:410:53:46

friends with everybody.

Above all,

the Yes programme offers young

0:53:460:53:52

people like Aisling a lifeline

against lowliness.

It's good to feel

0:53:520:53:55

good about yourself and not let

comments get you down. On the way

0:53:550:54:06

you affected by Williams syndrome.

They don't judge us whatsoever.

With

0:54:060:54:11

her Williams syndrome, the distance

is taking its toll on Aisling.

My

0:54:110:54:16

back was starting to hurt so I had

to let her sit down. Get a chocolate

0:54:160:54:21

bar into me. That's why I was a bit

behind.

A chopper bar has done a bit

0:54:210:54:28

of wonder has it?

Yeah.

Lets try and

catch up with the others shall we?

0:54:280:54:35

She's fiercely determined but a

short while later she is exhausted

0:54:350:54:39

and decides to hitch a lift in the

support vehicle. Even though she is

0:54:390:54:44

too tired to continue, Aisling is

determined to be there for her

0:54:440:54:49

friends from Yes at the finish line.

0:54:490:54:53

CHEERING

0:54:570:55:07

How are you now?

Are you all

0:55:070:55:10

Well done yes.

Here's to Children in

Need!

0:55:130:55:18

To donate £10, text the word

donates...

0:55:210:55:24

Well, as well as our Ramblers many

more of you do your thing for

0:55:380:55:43

Children in Need each and every

year.

Come on, what's wrong with

0:55:430:55:47

you? Come on...

0:55:470:55:50

We're on our way. I've got my gavel

here. A meet and greet the 24th of

0:57:270:57:35

March with 100 quid. The best six

bids we get we'll take them.

0:57:350:57:45

More music from Friday night. This

year's official Children in Need

0:58:170:58:24

single, sung by Katie Melua. It is

Fields of Gold.

0:58:240:58:29

# Ooh

0:58:380:58:48

# You'll remember me

when the west wind moves

0:58:490:58:54

# Among the fields of barley

0:58:540:59:03

# You can tell the sun

in his jealous sky

0:59:030:59:08

# When we walked in fields of gold

0:59:080:59:15

# So she took her love

for to gaze awhile

0:59:150:59:21

# Among the fields of barley

0:59:210:59:26

# In his arms she fell

as her hair came down

0:59:260:59:34

# Among the fields of gold

0:59:340:59:40

# Will you stay with me?

Will you be my love

0:59:400:59:46

# Among the fields of barley?

0:59:460:59:51

# You can tell the sun

in his jealous sky

0:59:510:59:58

# When we walked in fields of gold

0:59:581:00:06

# I never made promises lightly

1:00:061:00:13

# And there have been some

that I've broken

1:00:131:00:19

# But I swear in the days still left

1:00:191:00:25

# We'll walk in fields of gold

1:00:251:00:29

# We'll walk in fields of gold

1:00:291:00:37

# Ooh

1:00:371:00:46

# Many years have passed

since those summer days

1:00:481:00:56

# Among the fields of barley

1:00:561:01:01

# See the children run

as the sun goes down

1:01:011:01:08

# As you lie in fields of gold

1:01:081:01:15

# You'll remember me

when the west wind moves

1:01:151:01:22

# Among the fields of barley

1:01:221:01:27

# You can tell the sun

in his jealous sky

1:01:271:01:33

# When we walked in fields of gold

1:01:331:01:38

# When we walked in fields of gold

1:01:401:01:46

# When we walked

in fields of gold. #

1:01:461:01:56

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE.

1:02:011:02:03

Oh, what a beautiful song, with all

the proceeds of course going to

1:02:061:02:10

Children in Need. Together with your

donations we can make a difference

1:02:101:02:14

to the lives of children and young

people right across Northern

1:02:141:02:18

Ireland. Your generosity has helped

young people like Se.

1:02:181:02:26

I'm 17 and I identify as non-binary.

Non-binary means a lot of different

1:02:431:02:51

things to different people and in my

case it means I don't fit in with

1:02:511:02:56

bag boy or a girl. Although I was

born male gendered. When I went to a

1:02:561:03:06

rural school, it was all people who

aren't always open-minded and that

1:03:061:03:10

was rough in high school. I was

bullied all the way up to my final

1:03:101:03:16

year and it's not fun. Especially

when everything they target multiple

1:03:161:03:22

things like being gay, being

alternative and being overweight.

1:03:221:03:30

It is an organisation for gay and

transgender young people and we work

1:03:401:03:44

all over Northern Ireland. First how

we help people is connect them to

1:03:441:03:50

other young people in a safe space

where they can come and be

1:03:501:03:53

themselves. They know the people who

work here are LGBT, but they're

1:03:531:03:59

supportive of the young people who

come in. We do a lot of youth work

1:03:591:04:03

with the young people in terms of

improving mental health and

1:04:031:04:08

resilience and also tackling that

social isolation which is one of

1:04:081:04:13

biggest contributors to their mental

health issues. We are working with

1:04:131:04:16

young people who are quite

vulnerable and in some instances who

1:04:161:04:21

are very vulnerable and quite

regularly we may have a young person

1:04:211:04:25

who comes in who has just attempted

to take their own life and that is

1:04:251:04:31

all too regular. The mental health

issues cannot be overstated. It is

1:04:311:04:36

incredibly important to receive that

funding from Children in Need,

1:04:361:04:40

without it we would be massively

under-resourced and when an

1:04:401:04:45

organisation like Car Friend is

under-resourced you have some

1:04:451:04:49

vulnerable people being left out and

some people will say they could go

1:04:491:04:53

to any youth club. But the reality

is that experience isn't all good.

1:04:531:05:01

We deal with the people who don't

have a good experience. It is

1:05:011:05:07

important that we are there for

those young people. It is important

1:05:071:05:11

for Shay to tell their story,

because there is a lot of empowered

1:05:111:05:16

in sharing your own personal

experience. And also it is important

1:05:161:05:22

for Shay to share that experience so

other people might find some

1:05:221:05:29

strength in it and other people will

know that there is light at the end

1:05:291:05:33

of the tunnel if they don't feel

great about who they are and there

1:05:331:05:38

is always an another option.

From my

lowest point, Car Friend has nothing

1:05:381:05:45

but support and it was never

judgmental, it was, I know what

1:05:451:05:50

you're going through, I have been

there myself and here is whey want

1:05:501:05:54

to help you. The Shay that walked

into Car Friend didn't speak to

1:05:541:06:01

anyone. The first time I went in I

walked in and hid in the corner. But

1:06:011:06:06

the Shay I am now is... Mature and

grown nearly an adult. And I just

1:06:061:06:14

feel like a better human and a

better person for... Unleashing

1:06:141:06:20

what's inside.

It is not just the

LGBT community who benefits, it is

1:06:201:06:28

society in general. We are working

to improve the lived experiences of

1:06:281:06:35

LGBT across Northern Ireland and

that makes society in Northern

1:06:351:06:40

Ireland a better place.

1:06:401:06:44

That is one of many groups in

Northern Ireland where your

1:06:491:06:53

donations make a difference. So

thank you. To help them keep on

1:06:531:06:57

going, why not do your thing for

this year's Children in Need. To

1:06:571:07:00

find out more and to donate go to

the web-site.

1:07:001:07:04

You do change the lives of thousand

of young people in Northern Ireland.

1:07:251:07:32

That is almost it from Children in

Need. But we have one more special

1:07:321:07:36

performance. This year's Northern

Ireland Children in Need Choir.

On

1:07:361:07:40

Friday night, they sang live and in

Unison with thousands of other

1:07:401:07:45

children across the UK and now

they're going to sing just for you.

1:07:451:07:52

From five schools in Northern

Ireland, singing Somewhere Over The

1:07:521:07:58

Rainbow, please enjoy this year's

Children in Need Choir. Thanks for

1:07:581:08:02

supporting us.

See you next year.
