Fundraiser of the Year Award 2021 posted: 02/10/21

Yesterday Michael has launched the search for the Sir Terry Wogan Fundraiser of the Year 2021 on his BBC Radio 2 show.

This is the first time that Radio 2 has opened the search for nominations for the award, now in its sixth year.

Michael Ball said: "It is a huge honour for me to take the helm of The Sir Terry Wogan Fundraiser of the Year Award on Radio 2. All the fundraisers for BBC Children in Need are brilliant and we thank every single one of them, but this award means we can discover those superheroes who go even further and deserve extra special recognition of their work. It is such a wonderful tribute to the legacy of the late, great, Sir Terry."

You can nominate fundraisers "who have shown creativity, commitment and inspiration" on this page.
