The run up to Children in Need Day starts way, way back in the year and gathers speed in October and is running at breakneck level by November - I feel the thousands of other charities hardly get a look in from the beginning of Autumn onwards.
Plus, it's doubtful that all but the bigger charities can come even close to trying to match the resources of the BBC when it comes to planning their various appeals campaigns. Certainly not the wall-to-wall coverage that the Beeb gives via radio & TV, and funded by the license fees too.
I wonder if Children in Need shares any of it's donations with the other charities (and not only for children but elderly, disabled, animals etc?)
