Since Chris Evans announced he was leaving BBC Radio 2, there have been a few changes announced for the festival. It will no longer solely benefit BBC Children in Need but will now support a range of UK Children’s charities, including The Ellen MacArthur Cancer Trust, Starlight Children’s Foundation, Teenage Cancer Trust and Rainbow Trust.
50% of profits will still go to Children in Need and the other charities will receive 10% of the total funds raised.
