The concert raised £25,000.

Rebecca Keatley, actress and CBeebies presenter who compered the event, said:

It was an incredibly special evening with children from schools across the UK coming together to support other children who need our help. I would like to thank everyone who was involved and hope it raises lots of money for Barnardo’s and its work with vulnerable children.

Jen Privett, UK Events Manager at Barnardo’s said:

I would like to thank the staff of every school and group for taking up the gauntlet, for the hours of extra work they have put in, and for their enthusiasm for the concert.

The Barnardo’s Young Supporters’ Concerts have been held since 1998 involving up to 2000 children taking part each year.
