Tagged in: Press Releases
The STV Children’s Appeal live show returns for a fifth year on Friday 16th October, with TV favourite Lorraine Kelly reflecting on a fantastic year of fundraising. Broadcast live from Glasgow with links to Edinburgh, Aberdeen and Dundee, the programme will highlight stories from children affected by poverty in Scotland with a special guest appearance from First Minister Nicola Sturgeon.
 
Lorraine Kelly will be joined by co-presenter Sean Batty at Pacific Quay in Glasgow, welcoming fundraisers whose hard work has made the STV Children’s Appeal 2015 a huge success. Ewen Cameron from STV Edinburgh’s The Fountainbridge Show and STV Glasgow’s The Riverside Show presenter Jennifer Reoch will present live from Royal Bank of Scotland’s headquarters in Edinburgh. In Aberdeen, Andrea Brymer will be joined by First Minister Nicola Sturgeon and a host of fundraisers while Louise Cowie will complete the cross-country coverage in STV’s studios in Dundee.
 
Viewers will get an insight into some of the fantastic community projects that are supported by the STV Children’s Appeal and make a real difference in the lives of children and young people affected by poverty across Scotland.
 
Lorraine Kelly, trustee of the STV Children’s Appeal said: “The support we’re seeing from communities across Scotland is incredible, with people, groups and local businesses up and down the country getting behind the Appeal. I’m excited to be returning to host the live show again this year and reveal how much Scotland has raised for children living in poverty.
 
“As always, the phone lines will be open for viewers to get behind the Appeal and I would urge everyone to give what they can to help make a real difference in the lives of Scotland’s children.”
 
Viewers can get involved on the night by visiting www.stv.tv/appeal, tweeting #STVAppeal2015 and catching up on the STV Player.
