​Pudsey Visits The Mound

Our iconic headquarters gets a unique visitor.

The Mound, our iconic headquarters, lit up the Edinburgh skyline during the BBC Children in Need Appeal Show, with a spectacular, never seen before building projection, celebrating Bank of Scotland’s Principal Partnership with BBC Children in Need.

The display says ‘thank you’ to the hundreds of schools and thousands of pupils across Scotland who have been fundraising for BBC Children in Need.

The projection displayed messages of thanks to the many schools, teachers and pupils who have fundraised to help disadvantaged children and young people across Scotland through Champions of Change. The exciting education initiative – launched earlier this year by BBC Children in Need and Bank of Scotland - put children in charge of fundraising for the much-loved charity, while helping them learn and develop new skills to enhance their own futures. Passers-by also caught a glimpse of a very well-known yellow bear on The Mound too . . .

Annette Barnes, Bank of Scotland Managing Director said “Bank of Scotland is proud to support BBC Children in Need and we wanted to mark Appeal Night with something special, whilst also showing our gratitude to the thousands of school children who have helped fundraise for this year’s Appeal. I think that the projections on The Mound building will capture of both these sentiments perfectly. Our partnership with BBC Children in Need sits at the heart of our strategy to Help Britain Prosper, and knowing that together we can make a difference and help change the lives of disadvantaged young people is fantastic.”
