“I encourage everyone everywhere to buy one and help make a huge difference to the lives of disadvantaged children and young people around the UK.”
The T-shirt features the charity’s famous mascot, Pudsey, decorated in a geometric medley of colours and patterns.
The 100% cotton T-shirts, which retail at £12, are available in white or grey and in sizes S, M, L and XL at www.bbc.co.uk/pudsey. BBC Children in Need now funds 21 projects across Hertfordshire with over £990,000 hard at work to benefit young lives in the area.

Isabel Hospice, run by the Hospice’s Family Support Team provides counselling and support to young people in eastern Hertfordshire who are dealing with bereavement.
The project aims to help the young people cope with their feelings before they are bereaved and after the death, to help maintain and improve their emotional wellbeing.
