2018 Charity collection  

A charity collection was held in respect of two charities: bccs, a children's charity for Essex and East 
London and WellChild, the national charity for sick children.

The total amount raised at PLC Awards 2018, which was split equally between these two charities, was




bccs provides a caring, professional response to the child in need, irrespective of their background, race or religion; it aims always to uphold the rights of the child and to ensure that the protection and welfare of the child is paramount. The charity gladly embraces children of all religions, and of none. From very small beginnings 30 years ago, today bccs works throughout the whole of the county of Essex and five East London Boroughs.



More than 100,000 children and young people are living with serious illness across the UK. Many spend months, even years in hospital simply because there is no support enabling them to leave. Through a nationwide network of WellChild Nurses, home improvements and suitability projects, and family support programmes, WellChild helps give these children the best chance to thrive – at home, together with their families.
