TR staff at BBP and Waterside Park raise hundreds for Children in Need
TR’s Bellbrook Park (BBP) in Uckfield and Waterside Park in the West Midlands have raised over £300 between them after taking part in a range of activities on Friday 17th November for the BBC’s Children in Need charity initiative.
Uckfield’s BBP employees took part in a raffle and the Children in Need duck race, which was broadcast live on the charity’s Facebook page on Friday. The winners of the raffle were Shirley Creasey, winning the round of golf for two people at the East Sussex National Hotel and Sian Whitlock, winning the champagne afternoon tea for four people at the Buxted Park Hotel.
The winner of the duck race was Justin Bennett, who backed the ‘Golden Duck’. Overall, the BBP team raised £159.65.
Staff at Waterside Park held a cake sale and had their faces painted, and raised £154.50 in total. Added to the BBP figure, this makes a total of £314.15 across the two sites.

Staff at TR Uckfield getting their ducks in a row for BBC’s annual charity initiative
In order to raise money for the BBC’s annual ‘Children in Need’
fundraiser, staff at Uckfield’s BBP site will be participating in the charity’s national ‘duck race’ which will take place on social media at 1pm on 17th
November. Employees will also hold a raffle in order to raise further funds.
The duck race will be aired live on the Children in Need Facebook page, and will see 20 toy duck characters, including ‘Tim Beake’, ‘Count Quackula’ and ‘Ducky McDuckface’ go head to head. Employees from across the country have been encouraged to pick a duck for £2 in a sweepstake style competition, before tuning in to see how their chosen racer fares on the big day.
The BBC’s fundraising pack comes complete with top trump style scores out of ten for each duck, for Agility, Speed and Experience. After watching the race at 1pm, the person who has picked the winning duck will receive a prize. All the money collected will go to Children in Need.
Staff can also buy raffle tickets at 50p each, to be in with a chance of winning one of the following fantastic prizes:
- A round of golf for two at the East Sussex National Hotel
- Champagne afternoon tea for four at Buxted Park Hotel
