Using your money, Children in Need

supports projects all over Scotland.

0:02:300:02:35

In Dundee.

0:02:350:02:41

In Dundee. The Tamera looks after

children who are having a stressful

0:02:410:02:44

time due to illness. 12-year-old

Benny from Dundee sailed through

0:02:440:02:50

primary school loving sport and

spending time with friends. Until he

0:02:500:02:54

got cancer in May this year.

Doctors

diagnose it initially Aston

0:02:540:03:01

sillitis. The last thing we ever

expected to hear was the news that

0:03:010:03:06

he had leukaemia. Threw us into

complete turmoil.

My reaction wasn't

0:03:060:03:12

that severe. I was like, OK, that

doesn't sound too bad. I will get

0:03:120:03:17

through this, it will be easy.

Despite Benny's positive attitude,

0:03:170:03:21

it was clear he was seriously ill.

He was rushed to hospital 60 miles

0:03:210:03:26

away in Edinburgh.

Benny immediately

went into theatre to have the

0:03:260:03:31

Central line inserted in his chest

through which they could administer

0:03:310:03:36

the chemotherapy.

Benny spent a

month in hospital undergoing

0:03:360:03:40

intensive treatment. The doctors

hoped this would be enough to send

0:03:400:03:44

the cancer into remission.

Unfortunately, when Benny came back

0:03:440:03:49

from Edinburgh, some tests showed

Benny's leukaemia cells were more

0:03:490:03:54

severe in his bone marrow than was

first thought. They to switch him to

0:03:540:04:01

the hey rest regimes. The first year

of the three years will be the most

0:04:010:04:07

intensive.

Having chemotherapy makes

my arms and legs very weak. Too

0:04:070:04:13

tired to do anything. The one thing

I really hate is getting injected. I

0:04:130:04:18

find it OK when it's in my arm. In

my thigh, where I usually have to

0:04:180:04:24

get it, it hurts.

But the last straw

is just how much the chemotherapy's

0:04:240:04:31

affecting Benny appearance.

During

November, I get another five weeks

0:04:310:04:34

of chemotherapy. My hair will fall

out. I will lose the progress I've

0:04:340:04:40

been making. I don't know why I call

it progress. It's not even that

0:04:400:04:45

much.

We're in this together as a

family. We have to take it a day at

0:04:450:04:50

a time and see where we go from

there.

0:04:500:04:55

A lovely day for the sailing.

Yeah,

a good one, I think.

There's one

0:04:590:05:05

thing that's helping Benny and his

mum and dad to take their minds off

0:05:050:05:08

things. Your Children in Need

donations are helping the charity to

0:05:080:05:12

offer trips to families like Benny's

who've been suffering serious

0:05:120:05:16

illness.

After a long period maybe

in hospital undergoying some pretty

0:05:160:05:23

hefty treatments, it is just a great

time for families to get together

0:05:230:05:27

and have a sharing experience to

find their feet again.

It gives us

0:05:270:05:32

very good quality family time. We're

making memories. Oh, look, there's a

0:05:320:05:35

seal.

Yeah.

It's a seal of approval!

I'll get kicked off the boat! As

0:05:350:05:48

soon as we're out on the water you

tend to forget everything. That

0:05:480:05:53

Benny's leukaemia condition, every

hindrance we've been through for the

0:05:530:05:57

last two or three months, we all

felt completely relaxed.

This is us

0:05:570:06:07

well well and clear. Over.

You

actually feel a sense of freedom.

0:06:070:06:13

Just absolutely came at the right

time for all of us.

Today, as a

0:06:130:06:23

special treat, Taymara have invited

Benny's best pal on board.

I'm

0:06:230:06:28

really enjoying it. The fact I'm

with one of my friends. It's really

0:06:280:06:36

good to see this and it's all great.

0:06:360:06:44

Now, these mean streets have felt a

little bit safer in the last couple

0:07:010:07:05

of days. That's because the officers

from Scot squad have been patrol the

0:07:050:07:10

beat and making sure all is in

order. Of course, they bumped into a

0:07:100:07:15

few familiar faces along the way.

0:07:150:07:19

Children has a friend indeed in

Scottish police force commove

0:07:270:07:32

commissioner Cameron Mick Ellison.

The shield who protects Scotland is

0:07:320:07:39

visiting the nation's River City.

If

decent folk like you or I hear Matt

0:07:390:07:46

Baker's cycling on a rickshaw to

Glasgow in the hope to raise 4

0:07:460:07:53

billion pounds for Children in Need,

you think great. But mate baker is

0:07:530:07:59

in a windowless vehicle around the

corner, £4 million. He thinks

0:07:590:08:04

Baker's got the money. Before you

know where you are, there's a Bam

0:08:040:08:11

shoving the rickshaw into the River

Clyde and Matt Baker's tied up in

0:08:110:08:17

award robe. I can't allow Matt Baker

to go missing or aWal on my watch.

0:08:170:08:23

Otherwise, I'll have Sturgeon all

over me. I have a crack unit to

0:08:230:08:28

police this event and keep the bams

at bay. The great thing about an

0:08:280:08:33

event like this, it really gives a

lift to a disadvantaged community

0:08:330:08:39

like Shield Edge.

Who are you

calling disadvantaged. Some cheek on

0:08:390:08:44

you, big man. Doing your nose on us?

I'm not.

Did you come with that tall

0:08:440:08:51

lassie off the news. That Jackie

Bird?

Is Jackie Bird here? I

0:08:510:08:56

honestly didn't know.

You lot don't

know much about anything.

Ma, move

0:08:560:09:02

it, come on. What?

Do I know you?

Me, no, I don't think so. I've never

0:09:020:09:10

been in trouble with the police.

Aye, and I'm Kim Kardashian!

Sorry

0:09:100:09:18

about that!

I'm sure I've met her.

0:09:180:09:27

about that!

I'm sure I've met her.

We're definitely going to make it on

0:09:270:09:30

the telly with this bad boy.

Advertising for the garage.

Defoe.

0:09:300:09:41

Advertising for the garage.

Defoe.

HUMMING I can't believe I miss

0:09:410:09:44

working with PC Hugh McArdle.

We

will have to ask you to move this

0:09:440:09:50

vehicle.

We're nearly done, pal.

She's not your pal, pal.

We need

0:09:500:09:56

this area clear and be on the

lookout for dodgy-looking characters

0:09:560:10:02

before The One Show rickshaw gets

here.

Plus there will be cameras. We

0:10:020:10:06

need to make sure nothing and no-one

shows Scotland in a bad light. So

0:10:060:10:12

beat it.

Think you're looking in the

wrong place for dodgy looking

0:10:120:10:17

characters, officers.

Will you

please deal with him.

Excuse me,

0:10:170:10:23

gents. Bobby, we talked about this.

The work I'm doing is overtime. That

0:10:230:10:31

means I'm not on desk duty at the

moment. That means, first of all,

0:10:310:10:35

I'm concerned about how you managed

to track me down and second of all,

0:10:350:10:39

you really need to go home now. OK.

I have something to say but I didn't

0:10:390:10:45

want to interrupt you. Is this a

good time?

Aye, we're done here.

0:10:450:10:50

Nice try, sunshine.

You watch

yourself, sunshine.

This is a police

0:10:500:10:56

matter.

Sorry officer.

We need to

get some practice in here.

Practice

0:10:560:11:03

for what?

The rickshaw challenges.

We're going to cycle along the river

0:11:030:11:11

with them.

Good luck getting a turn

of speed up on that one.

Could you

0:11:110:11:17

do any better.

Officers could well

beat you two in a race.

Me and Bob

0:11:170:11:23

will race you and officer Karen.

Your name's Bob?

Much as I'd like to

0:11:230:11:30

take you up on that, I will not be

racing against this chap. Totally

0:11:300:11:38

race with him, but...

No, not

happening. We're on duty.

0:11:380:11:45

I'm begging you, please do this?

No.

I haven't been outside the station

0:11:480:11:53

in five years. The only exercise I

get is the two stairs up and down to

0:11:530:12:00

the custody suite and I eat most of

the dinners on the way. I need this.

0:12:000:12:06

Please, let's have some fun?

No way.

I don't deploy this card lightly.

0:12:060:12:14

But I'm a Sergeant and I outrank

you.

My knowledge of the roads

0:12:140:12:20

outrangs yours, Sergeant.

What's the

scrap then? Are you chicken? What

0:12:200:12:27

did you say?

I believe PC is saying

the slightly shorter of the

0:12:270:12:38

gentlemen there cast as pegses on

your knowledge of the road. Are you

0:12:380:12:41

going to take that? Well, lads,

looks like you've got yourself a wee

0:12:410:12:46

race then. We'll be back.

0:12:460:12:51

So does your knowledge of roads

figure out where we'll get a

0:12:580:13:02

rickshaw at short notice?

We're the

Scottish police. We impound

0:13:020:13:05

everything.

Here, we've got the same

name?

Aye.

And, what's your name?

0:13:050:13:17

Angus.

Angus. I don't like him.

Cool!

0:13:170:13:27

More to come from the River Squad

team a little later on. A highlight

0:13:340:13:40

of each appeal night is our Children

in Need Choir. 1500 youngsters from

0:13:400:13:45

all over the country took part in

this year's musical masterpiece. In

0:13:450:13:51

Scotland, children from across

Ayrshire came together dedicating

0:13:510:13:53

their weekends and spare time

rehearsing. Our choirmaster was on

0:13:530:13:57

hand to work his magic. It wasn't

long before everyone was in fine

0:13:570:14:01

voice. This year, Scottish Children

in Need Choir is made up from pupils

0:14:010:14:13

of 30 schools across Ayrshire. The

musical director is on hand to make

0:14:130:14:18

sure everyone's prepared for the big

night.

This is our first chance to

0:14:180:14:21

bring young people from all over

Ayrshire, from the different schools

0:14:210:14:25

together, and have them singing as

one choir.

0:14:250:14:29

one choir.

# Somewhere Over The Rainbow.

Over

0:14:290:14:35

The Rainbow's a fantastic song but

has challenges. There is an ok tav

0:14:350:14:40

jump. A big note. Make sure we get

that M

When we get it wrong, the

0:14:400:14:51

choirmaster doesn't shout at us. We

get to practise it and get it right.

0:14:510:14:58

Get the birds fly I over.

It is such

a beautiful song. It represents

0:14:580:15:02

courage and hope. If you want to go

on big adventures.

I've been

0:15:020:15:08

practising the words quite a lot at

home. I think my mum's starting to

0:15:080:15:12

get fed up because me and my brother

are singing it all the time.

One of

0:15:120:15:17

this year's schools is bringing an

additional element to the

0:15:170:15:20

performance.

Our school decided to

do signing language because one of

0:15:200:15:27

the boys has a Sis ability. We're

trying to teach him sing language.

0:15:270:15:33

This is my son Harris. He has

cerebral palsy. He's in the signing

0:15:330:15:37

choir. He's now able to sign with

his friends from the school and it's

0:15:370:15:43

just brought him on leaps and

bounds. He's just loving it.

We're

0:15:430:15:48

talking about how great it would be

if everyone could learn how to sign

0:15:480:15:51

it. That's what's happened this

morning. Would you like to learn how

0:15:510:15:56

to sign some of it?

ALL: Yes.

We'll do that as part of

0:15:560:16:01

our performance

ALL: Yes.

Seeing hundreds of people

0:16:010:16:05

signing, many for the first time,

was quite an experience.

0:16:050:16:17

Although they have been busy with

rehearsals, the pupils have still

0:16:220:16:27

found time for a spot of

fundraising.

Today we are singing to

0:16:270:16:31

raise money for Children in Need!

0:16:310:16:35

We had lots of fun and raised lots

of money.

Back at the rehearsal, the

0:16:390:16:46

hard work is paying off.

0:16:460:16:50

And now that the our wonderful

Scottish children's choir singing

0:17:020:17:05

and signing Over The Rainbow.

0:17:050:17:08

Since 2011 The One Show's Rickshaw

Challenge has raised a vast amount

0:21:290:21:36

for Children in Need and every penny

donated helps children and young

0:21:360:21:38

people who need it most. This year's

challenge kicked off on Thursday in

0:21:380:21:45

London. The new team of six riders,

all of whom have been supported by

0:21:450:21:51

BBC Children in Need funded

projects, at eight days to get to

0:21:510:21:55

Glasgow, no matter what.

The first

couple of miles down. Seven miles

0:21:550:21:59

in, our first problem and it's a big

one. The rickshaw is down.

0:21:590:22:11

one. The rickshaw is down. Goodbye,

Oxfordshire, hello, Warwickshire. We

0:22:110:22:12

have arrived in Morecambe.

For two

of the riders, the long and arduous

0:22:120:22:19

cycle to Scotland is a return home.

My name is Greg, I'm 18 from

0:22:190:22:24

Dunfermline. I'm originally from

Poland, when I was nine my dad died.

0:22:240:22:31

After that my mum started neglecting

me, she would not give me food and I

0:22:310:22:35

was always hungry.

My name is Shona.

My condition is degenerative. I just

0:22:350:22:45

wanted to be able to do something

like this while I still can.

We have

0:22:450:22:53

made it to Scotland! Over you go!

Team Rickshaw!

CHEERING

0:22:530:23:02

The

0:23:020:23:10

The total is £5,063,230!

We spoke to

you last year, who would have but

0:23:100:23:17

you would be doing something like

this? Describe it to me.

It was

0:23:170:23:22

tough at times but also exciting

because we bonded together as a team

0:23:220:23:26

and got through all those miles.

You

said you wanted an adventure, did

0:23:260:23:32

you get one?

Yes, definitely. I

wanted something that would

0:23:320:23:39

challenge me. And that's what I got.

You have been astonishing, you have

0:23:390:23:46

kept everybody going and raised a

phenomenal amount of money. What

0:23:460:23:49

would you like to say to these

amazing young people?

They are all

0:23:490:23:53

incredible in their own right. This

challenge, it is nothing in

0:23:530:23:58

comparison to what they have already

been through in their lives. I have

0:23:580:24:02

thoroughly enjoyed every moment

riding alongside you guys and I will

0:24:020:24:05

miss you all, I really well.

Rickshaw Riders, we salute you!

0:24:050:24:14

Still to come, we have part two of

our special collaboration between

0:24:140:24:18

the cast of River City and Scot

Squad, River Squad. A special

0:24:180:24:24

performance by Katie Melua of the

official Children in Need single,

0:24:240:24:29

Fields of Gold. Another chance to

hear the wonderful Scottish

0:24:290:24:31

children's choir, plus we continue

to look at all the Children in Need

0:24:310:24:38

funded projects that benefit from

your donations. One of the most

0:24:380:24:45

important ways your money can help

is to allow young people with a

0:24:450:24:49

variety of disabilities and complex

needs simply to have some fun.

0:24:490:24:53

Children in Need support projects

like Kudla bright sparks in

0:24:530:24:58

Bonnyrigg to do that, providing

activities which provide laughter

0:24:580:25:03

and relaxation.

Well done, poppy.

Harry is a happy, chatty

0:25:030:25:12

seven-year-old but his journey has

not been easy. He was a bright,

0:25:120:25:19

bubbly baby but when he was two he

seemed to change overnight.

He

0:25:190:25:25

seemed to have a few words to start

off with mum and ball and cart but

0:25:250:25:31

they suddenly disappeared.

Harry

stopped trying to talk or make eye

0:25:310:25:35

contact.

He has always had a light

in his eye but that went.

The

0:25:350:25:41

doctors diagnosed severe autism.

He

didn't even seem to want to be in

0:25:410:25:46

our world. It was like he was gone

for a good while and I know that

0:25:460:25:52

sounds stupid, sorry...

Then it was

discovered that as well as autism

0:25:520:25:59

Harry had a rare chromosomal

disorder.

He has a genetic condition

0:25:590:26:05

that affects his growth. He is a

very big boy for his age and he

0:26:050:26:10

grows up quite an alarming rate. He

is seven years old at the moment he

0:26:100:26:15

has size five adult feet, he is

almost as tall as myself. Autism is

0:26:150:26:20

hard enough but when you factor in

his wake and growth issues, it makes

0:26:200:26:24

it very difficult.

One of the

biggest challenges of Harry's

0:26:240:26:31

condition is managing his insatiable

appetite.

Trying to stop him eating

0:26:310:26:35

is a 24-hour a day task and it is

not just about food. I can struggle

0:26:350:26:41

to go for a shower if I'm in on my

own, I can come up to find him

0:26:410:26:46

sitting eating toilet rolls like

their apples. He still in the strike

0:26:460:26:50

from his brother but he ate the

cardboard as well! It's not funny

0:26:500:26:54

but sometimes you do have to laugh.

The demands of Harry's autism and

0:26:540:27:02

genetic disorder began to make

family life very hard.

Simple things

0:27:020:27:07

like just nipping to the supermarket

to get shopping. He can be upset,

0:27:070:27:12

distressed, he can sit down and

refused to get up. He can be

0:27:120:27:19

emotional, he can bite himself when

he is angry and upset.

As his

0:27:190:27:25

behaviour became more challenging,

Gemma began losing her confidence.

0:27:250:27:32

You do withdraw, and especially when

they first get diagnosed, it takes

0:27:320:27:35

you a while to get a thick skin to

things. People stare and make

0:27:350:27:41

comments and look. It was incredibly

difficult to deal with and I would

0:27:410:27:45

avoid going out or taking him places

rather than having to face that. It

0:27:450:27:50

is lonely. Especially at first.

Everything changes, you don't know

0:27:500:27:57

how but everything has changed and

you don't know where the future is

0:27:570:28:00

lying and you don't know what to do.

I know people will say it is not the

0:28:000:28:04

end of the world but when you see

your older son joining these clubs

0:28:040:28:08

and going to school and doing

typical things, and you know that is

0:28:080:28:12

never going to be for your younger

son, it absolutely breaks your

0:28:120:28:15

heart.

0:28:150:28:18

Hello!

Just as they were feeling at

their lowest comedy family found

0:28:210:28:28

Bright Sparks, a local support group

for families with disabilities --

0:28:280:28:32

feeling at their lowest, the family

found Bright Sparks.

They appeared

0:28:320:28:37

at our door very unsure and anxious.

From first walking in you just

0:28:370:28:45

felt...

You felt you were somewhere

where your child could be the way

0:28:450:28:50

they are, nobody looked at you any

different.

He loves coming here, the

0:28:500:28:55

sensory room and the playroom.

Thanks to your donations to Children

0:28:550:29:02

in Need, Bright Sparks were able to

provide harried with speech and

0:29:020:29:05

music therapy which helped him find

his voice again -- provide harried.

0:29:050:29:11

When he arrived he was non-verbal.

When he arrived he was non-verbal.

0:29:110:29:15

-- Harry.

You need to stand here.

Now he is chatting away and very

0:29:150:29:24

confident which we are proud of

because we have been part of that.

I

0:29:240:29:27

really credit the physique therapy

he got with helping him massively,

0:29:270:29:32

to come back into our world.

That's

looking good.

I like the cake.

You

0:29:320:29:40

made the cake? Wow! We have

absolutely never looked back, for us

0:29:400:29:49

finding Bright Sparks has been one

of the best things to happen to us

0:29:490:29:54

for Harry and myself.

I give you a

big hug.

0:29:540:29:56

Now, let's return to River Squad and

see how they're getting on with

0:30:150:30:19

their very own Rickshaw Challenge.

0:30:190:30:28

their very own Rickshaw Challenge.

National man Cameron Mick Ellison is

0:30:280:30:32

getting to know One Stop prior

righter.

Were you at the launch in

0:30:320:30:40

Oban? Launch in Geneva? The highland

games. I was the Chieftan?

No. I ran

0:30:400:30:51

an ice cream van. Maybe you tried my

double nuggets?

No. Wait, 1987

0:30:510:30:59

Joshua Trees tour. I was a rookie

doing crowd control. You were at

0:30:590:31:05

front of stage. I caught you. You

don't remember? There's no reason

0:31:050:31:08

you should remember.

Of course I to.

Aye.

Still haven't found what I'm

0:31:080:31:15

looking for?

Sorry?

That was the

song they were singing when you

0:31:150:31:21

leapt from that stage and I caught

you in these constable's arms. I

0:31:210:31:27

never forget a face. Or a smile.

Listen, I don't suppose...

What's

0:31:270:31:34

happening over there?

Spotting a

breach of the peace, the chief goes

0:31:340:31:39

to lay down the law.

Remember, the

reputation of the Scottish police

0:31:390:31:44

force is resting on your shoulders.

Do not let me down.

Remember, the

0:31:440:31:51

reputation of Shieldinch is hanging

in the balance. Don't let your mammy

0:31:510:31:55

down, son.

It's only donkey Kong.

We're doing this.

Aye, aye.

0:31:550:32:05

The battle commences.

CHEERING

0:32:100:32:15

The raisin tense fist. Race

intensifies.

0:32:150:32:23

The results are almost in. Bear with

us!

I think the Shieldinch boys just

0:32:290:32:39

edged it.

Oh, well done, boys. Wait

fill I tell Dougie.

Dougie?

I am sea

0:32:390:32:46

a fella.

Oh, right. You're spoken

for?

Aye, yeah, it's early days, but

0:32:460:32:54

he's a keeper.

Good. Good, good,

good.

0:32:540:32:59

So I think by allowing the little

Glaswegian street people to win, I

0:33:030:33:07

think we've given a boost to this

disadvantaged community ergo the

0:33:070:33:14

real winners today, the Scottish

police force. Policing is all about

0:33:140:33:17

hearts and minds. Today, we've won

the Hearts and Minds of the

0:33:170:33:21

Shieldinch community. I'm going to

leave the good people of Shieldinch

0:33:210:33:25

now and head upriver to Pacific Quay

where apparently the leading weather

0:33:250:33:32

persons Judith Ralston is attempting

to eighth 37 boiled eggs in 30

0:33:320:33:37

seconds. I will get up there and

secure the perimeter. What's that?

0:33:370:33:43

Quail's eggs? Not nearly as

impressive. Anyone can eat that main

0:33:430:33:49

quail's eggs.

0:33:490:33:52

Thank you to the cast of river city

and Scot Squad for giving their time

0:33:550:34:01

and talent to Children in Need. The

money you donate helps support young

0:34:010:34:05

people when they need it most. There

are an estimated 29,000 young

0:34:050:34:12

careers in Scotland dedicating their

lives to looking after loved ones.

0:34:120:34:15

The donations you make to Children

in Need goes towards counselling,

0:34:150:34:21

respite and fun days out for

self-lets young people like

0:34:210:34:24

Georgina. Here's her story.

0:34:240:34:28

Eight-year-old Georgina lives at

home with her mum, Laura, and her

0:34:310:34:35

little brother.

I'm Georgina. This

is Archie. He is cute. He's smiley,

0:34:350:34:46

he's giggly. He's just the way he

is.

Archie was born with most of his

0:34:460:34:52

brain missing which has left himself

easterly physically disabled and

0:34:520:34:56

blind.

The doctors said he would

only live up to five months. He's

0:34:560:35:01

five years old now. Aren't you baby?

He can't walk. He can't move but he

0:35:010:35:09

can smile and he can go ah and

stuff. And it's cute. Yeah.

He needs

0:35:090:35:16

to be cared for 24 hours a day.

For

the most part, it's pretty full-on.

0:35:160:35:25

Archie could wake up coffee and

being sick. You have to jump out of

0:35:250:35:28

bed. No chance to brush your teeth

or having a shower. A lot of

0:35:280:35:34

lifting. Bringing him into the

kitchen. Getting his meals set up.

0:35:340:35:38

Trying to feed him. There's some

nights where he'll sit in his chair

0:35:380:35:42

and he's happy. There's others where

he's constantly needing attention.

0:35:420:35:48

The days can be really, really hard.

But Georgie usually gives me a hand

0:35:480:35:53

to help with all that.

Georgina has

developed a special bond with Archie

0:35:530:35:58

and has found her own way to

entertain him while her mum's busy.

0:35:580:36:04

entertain him while her mum's busy.

# You know that I'm still standing.

0:36:040:36:06

# You know that I'm still standing.

I think she misses out on a lot of

0:36:060:36:11

one to to one. Even when you're

having one to one you're still

0:36:110:36:15

looking after Archie. It is a

challenge. There are some times when

0:36:150:36:18

you just kind of go, it's been a

couple of weeks and I've not spent a

0:36:180:36:23

proper evening with her. It breaks

my heart. It's hard.

Archie's

0:36:230:36:27

condition is life-limiting. Over the

last year, he's had some very

0:36:270:36:34

serious medical setbacks.

We nearly

lost him twice last year. Archie

0:36:340:36:37

went into a 20-hour seizure attack.

We couldn't get him out of it. He

0:36:370:36:42

was at the point of basically, the

Meds were going to kill him or the

0:36:420:36:47

seizure was going to kill him. That

was the first time, I think, really,

0:36:470:36:50

that it hit close to home how

quickly he could go.

For young

0:36:500:36:56

careers like Georgina, it's not

always the amount of practical

0:36:560:36:59

support they give that takes its

toll, often the hardest thing is how

0:36:590:37:04

much they worry.

I mostly feel

worried at night-time or at school.

0:37:040:37:10

I think when I come home from school

Archie might have a problem, what's

0:37:100:37:16

it called? Maybe like pass away.

0:37:160:37:25

But when things feel tough, there is

help on hand. Your donations to

0:37:310:37:38

Children in Need help sterling young

careers give Georgina and other

0:37:380:37:42

young careers some all important

time-out with friends.

You now go

0:37:420:37:45

up.

Yeah.

Then, you will also...

Gina is a confident, fun young

0:37:450:37:55

bubbly young girl. Coming on trips

like this brings her out of her

0:37:550:38:00

Shell and gives her the chance to be

the little girl she wants to be.

It

0:38:000:38:04

really helps. I get to spend more

time with people I know have the

0:38:040:38:08

same problems. It makes me feel

happy I'm not the only person.

All

0:38:080:38:13

the kids here understand what it is

like to have that extra

0:38:130:38:16

responsibility at home where

somebody's ill and how important it

0:38:160:38:19

is for them to come on trips like

this and get that time away.

Oh, my

0:38:190:38:24

gosh.

They get on so well. A

You've

done awesome to get up there. Get

0:38:240:38:31

ready to jump. We here to

Er

encourage them.

0:38:310:38:36

It was a bit scary. It looks like

it's not that high. But when you get

0:38:370:38:42

up there, it is pretty high. This

was awesome.

Up next is Katie Melua

0:38:420:38:53

performing the official Children in

Need single Fields of Gold.

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:42:220:42:29

Just one text from you can change a

child's life. Children in Need

0:42:290:42:34

currently fund 62 projects across

the UK which help children deal with

0:42:340:42:38

bereavement and stress. When

12-year-old Doddy lost his father to

0:42:380:42:45

a genetic condition, the trauma

turned his life upside down. Thanks

0:42:450:42:53

to projects like Stable Life it

helped him. Doddy is 12. A

0:42:530:43:00

year-and-a-half ago, he lost his

dad, Mark.

He enjoyed making stuff

0:43:000:43:04

with me. Doing stuff in the garage.

We made ponds in the garden. Put

0:43:040:43:12

fences up and stuff. My train set

was my grandpa's. Me and my dad had

0:43:120:43:16

it. We turned it into what it is

now.

Nantes before he died, Mark

0:43:160:43:26

started to feel unwell.

He always

had a stomach ache, feeling sick.

0:43:260:43:32

They did various fests on him. We

got a phone call from the

0:43:320:43:37

consultant. The consultant said Mark

was in end stage liver failure but

0:43:370:43:41

they didn't know why.

Because of the

liver problem, he just went really

0:43:410:43:45

yellow. We could still have fun with

it though. We kept buying Simpson's

0:43:450:43:51

merchandise for him.

He was turning

into homer Simpson.

Yeah, always

0:43:510:43:56

trying to get the fun out of

everything.

He took it all in good

0:43:560:44:00

humour, he really did. It really

came out of the blue. To be told he

0:44:000:44:06

needed a liver transplant. He was

unconscious for three days.

I found

0:44:060:44:12

it really difficult to visit him

when he was like that. It was so

0:44:120:44:16

upsetting.

He was second on the

transplant list. Unfortunately, we

0:44:160:44:21

ran out of time and he Ziad on 23rd

February. -- he died on 23rd

0:44:210:44:28

February.

To make a fresh start

after Mark's death, sues and and

0:44:280:44:37

Doddy moved from England to the

Scottish Borders to be near family

0:44:370:44:41

and a place with happy memories.

Dad

was always behind the camera. We've

0:44:410:44:46

not too many photos of him. He was

the one who took all the photos.

But

0:44:460:44:51

taking on a new school and new

friends while still grieving for his

0:44:510:44:56

dad proved too much for him.

It was

overwhelming. I became really sad

0:44:560:45:01

and upset all the time. I just

wanted to sit in my room all by

0:45:010:45:05

myself.

He became shy, quiet.

I got

anxious about doing everything.

0:45:050:45:09

Sometimes aggressive.

I was getting

really ill from it.

Doddy started

0:45:090:45:16

having uncontrollable panic attacks.

You were feeling sick. You were

0:45:160:45:21

trembling and sweating. Just hyper

ventilating. Getting chest pains,

0:45:210:45:27

weren't you?

I couldn't even go to

bed. That's how bad it was.

It could

0:45:270:45:31

be 1.00 in the morning. We'd be

sitting in the bathroom just

0:45:310:45:36

counting one two ten and starting

again, counting one to ten trying to

0:45:360:45:41

get through it. He just disappeared.

He went away somewhere that I didn't

0:45:410:45:47

know where it was. It made me feel

scared because I should be looking

0:45:470:45:51

after him. But I couldn't take his

pain away.

0:45:510:45:55

Just when it felt like he could not

go on, Doddy was introduced to

0:46:000:46:05

Stable Life. Your donations help

fund this horse Centre project which

0:46:050:46:09

helps young people in distress.

When

he first came with us he was very

0:46:090:46:15

anxious and almost closed down and

he was a young person who seemed to

0:46:150:46:20

want to hold everything together but

had forgotten how to have fun and

0:46:200:46:25

just be himself. You find a click

with some ponies more than others

0:46:250:46:30

and make a real connection.

The

first I Kinnara and started grooming

0:46:300:46:34

the horse as I was riding a horse

called Danny -- the first time I

0:46:340:46:38

came here. I knew that this was the

way I was going to do it, to calm

0:46:380:46:45

myself down and get less stress.

Loving his weekly riding lessons,

0:46:450:46:51

Doddy really pushed himself to take

on new challenges.

As soon as they

0:46:510:46:56

asked me if I wanted to canter, I

was like yeah, I can do this and

0:46:560:47:01

that was a turning point. Sometimes

I couldn't leave the house, I was so

0:47:010:47:06

anxious about doing new things but

since I have cantered that hasn't

0:47:060:47:10

really happened.

I'm so proud of

him, the way he has come on in the

0:47:100:47:14

last year, he has changed immensely.

He is now oozing with confidence in

0:47:140:47:21

all areas and showing what potential

he has, he is an absolute treasure.

0:47:210:47:26

They gave me my son back, he is back

to being the Doddy I know, confident

0:47:260:47:32

and self assured and caring. He is

Doddy, back to being Doddy again.

0:47:320:47:39

Your donations to Children in Need

help to support a myriad of

0:48:020:48:07

charities across Scotland for so

many children and continue to

0:48:070:48:10

support them into adulthood. A

number of young people have

0:48:100:48:13

benefited so much from Children in

Need projects that they wanted to

0:48:130:48:17

give something back. Here are their

inspiring stories. Every year we

0:48:170:48:23

make films that show how children

all round Scotland are being helped

0:48:230:48:27

by Children in Need. But this film

is different. This is about four

0:48:270:48:34

young people whose lives were

changed by Children in Need and now

0:48:340:48:37

they are giving something back. This

is Jordan. The Children in Need

0:48:370:48:48

funded project Jack and Jill has

been giving him a helping hand since

0:48:480:48:52

he was ten, offering him all sorts

of activities from a weekly youth

0:48:520:48:56

club to day trips in the holidays.

Our main focus is to reduce social

0:48:560:49:03

isolation and increase the feeling

of pride in young people.

Now he is

0:49:030:49:09

17 and he is paying back.

Being

helpful, and with my family.

Jordan

0:49:090:49:18

is giving his time helping to run

the laughter Yoga class.

Does

0:49:180:49:24

anybody know what that is?

It makes

you laugh.

Roller-coaster.

0:49:240:49:34

you laugh.

Roller-coaster.

We

researched about laughter yoga and

0:49:340:49:35

it is about ringing a bit more

happiness and joy which helps to

0:49:350:49:40

reduce the chances of mental ill

health.

0:49:400:49:47

health. Having volunteers like

Jordan means they can show other

0:49:470:49:52

young people just how much skills

you can develop as a young person.

0:49:520:49:56

He volunteers at many of our

fundraising might as well and he

0:49:560:49:59

really is an all-round super

volunteer and Jack and Jill would be

0:49:590:50:03

lost without him.

0:50:030:50:04

And in Glasgow there is Dylan. After

he and his twin sister were born,

0:50:080:50:16

Dylan suffered a series of fits that

meant he would never walk. But it

0:50:160:50:20

has not stopped him dancing.

0:50:200:50:27

has not stopped him dancing.

Independence is an inclusive dance

0:50:270:50:28

company based in last go. It is to

give dance opportunities to people

0:50:280:50:35

who usually or in the past have been

excluded from that kind of

0:50:350:50:38

opportunity.

If I had not joined

Independence what I would not think

0:50:380:50:43

to dance and they have completely

changed my life and it is amazing to

0:50:430:50:47

be part of the company.

And now

Dylan is giving something back.

We

0:50:470:50:56

quite often have fundraising

weekends where we go and shake hands

0:50:560:51:01

and ask people to donate and he

always commits his time to this and

0:51:010:51:05

raises a lot of money we can put

back into the company.

They give us

0:51:050:51:12

the tins and by the end mine is

full.

A lot of time it is something

0:51:120:51:19

missing in their lives come and

dance gives them control and

0:51:190:51:23

volunteering and giving back gives

them that sense of control as well.

0:51:230:51:27

And in Dundee there is Rhys who is

16 and has been coming to the ADHD

0:51:290:51:38

support group for two years.

The

first day I went I remember going in

0:51:380:51:43

and absolutely loving it and I

didn't want to go home. Everybody

0:51:430:51:48

welcomed me in and made me feel like

I was the same as them.

Rees suffers

0:51:480:51:56

from hyperactivity, anxiety and

difficulty concentrating.

So many

0:51:560:51:59

people don't understand it, it is an

invisible illness and a chemical

0:51:590:52:04

imbalance in the brain. Every kid is

affected differently.

Meeting others

0:52:040:52:10

with the same condition has made all

the difference.

They share their

0:52:100:52:16

experience with you and you can

share your experience. It has made

0:52:160:52:21

me happier, happier with myself

because I used to think that I've

0:52:210:52:25

got ADHD and I'm a weirdo. If I

hadn't gone that I wouldn't be what

0:52:250:52:29

I am today. It changes you, makes

you your true self.

Coming here has

0:52:290:52:35

helped so much he has chosen to

volunteer with younger kids.

0:52:350:52:42

volunteer with younger kids.

Once he

started his volunteering, the

0:52:420:52:44

confidence in him was just

brilliant, amazing.

I love

0:52:440:52:47

volunteering because I get to go in

and show the positives of having

0:52:470:52:53

ADHD. You got a never-ending supply

of energy! It is amazing to have it

0:52:530:53:00

and you wouldn't be you without it.

0:53:000:53:02

In Glasgow there is Eddie. He has

been attending the Possibilities

0:53:060:53:15

youth club since he was eight.

We

have social groups, arts and crafts

0:53:150:53:20

and on top of that we provide

volunteer opportunities.

It was a

0:53:200:53:25

refuge for Eddie who had been

bullied at school because of his

0:53:250:53:28

disability.

It is water on the

brain, it affects my head.

0:53:280:53:38

brain, it affects my head. It would

always affect my head and I would

0:53:380:53:40

have to go to hospital and stuff.

It

is the youth club that helped him

0:53:400:53:45

come out of himself again.

I was

quite shy. Sitting in the corner and

0:53:450:53:51

I didn't know anybody. But I started

to know everybody and everybody was

0:53:510:53:57

friends. I progressed myself and got

more confident and confident.

Eddie

0:53:570:54:01

is so grateful for the boost he has

been given that he is now

0:54:010:54:04

volunteering, organising bus runs

into the youth club.

I have been

0:54:040:54:09

waiting half an hour!

Know you

haven't! Eddie has given loads back.

0:54:090:54:19

He is that vibrant character that

can get everybody going. As soon as

0:54:190:54:23

they get on the bus.

I come here

every Tuesday. It makes me feel

0:54:230:54:33

brilliant because I'm doing

something, I'm not sitting in the

0:54:330:54:37

house constantly, I'm out

volunteering and stuff. I wake up in

0:54:370:54:43

the morning and go yes, it's

Tuesday! Brilliant!

And this is just

0:54:430:54:51

the tip of the iceberg. There are

young people all round Scotland

0:54:510:54:55

working tirelessly to support

Children in Need funded projects.

0:54:550:55:00

Volunteers, we salute you.

0:55:000:55:02

That's almost it from us this year.

Thank you to all of you, your

0:55:300:55:35

donations really do make a

difference to the lives of children

0:55:350:55:38

and young people across the whole of

Scotland. To play is out, let the

0:55:380:55:43

again the magnificent Children in

Need Scottish choir. Enjoy. Thank

0:55:430:55:48

you, and goodbye.

Jackie Bird presents a special round-up of all the best bits from Friday night's Children in Need extravaganza plus an extended look at how the charity supports young people in Scotland.

Through a series of short films we meet some of the children whose lives have been changed by Children in Need's diverse range of projects all across Scotland.

There's also another chance to see the performance from this year's Scottish Children in Need Choir, led by Choir Master Andrew Panton and made up of 125 young people aged between 8 and 15 from schools across Ayrshire performing a special version of Over the Rainbow and an exclusive rousing performance of Johnny Nash's I Can See Clearly Now.

Jackie also looks back at the moment One Show presenter Matt Baker and his Rickshaw Challenge team - including Scottish riders Greg, 18, and 17-year-old Shona - arrived at BBC Scotland on Friday night at the end of their epic 500-mile 'Ride to the Clyde' from London.

Stars from River City and Scot Squad also get in on the act with an exclusive mash-up sketch filmed especially for Children in Need.
