Children from the Great Yarmouth area are to take part in the Children's Choir at this year's BBC Children in Need appeal.

The charity TV evening returns on Friday, November 13 and hosts Sir Terry Wogan, Tess Daly, Fearne Cotton, Rochelle Humes and Nick Grimshaw will be joined by over 1,000 schoolchildren from six locations across the country for a live performance.

This will be the fifth year that the Children's Choir has performed for BBC Children in Need with this year's group coming together to sing The Climb, originally sung by Miley Cyrus.

Around 200 children will perform in the choir made up of youngsters from Great Yarmouth High School, North Denes Junior School, Beccles Primary Academy, Reepham High School, St Nicholas Priory School and Benjamin Britten High School in Lowestoft. Each school has already started their rehearsals for their live performance, where they will be led by choirmistress Samantha Coe, a classically trained musician and soprano who runs the Wharf Academy Music School in Norfolk.

BBC Children in Need currently funds 36 projects across Norfolk with funding of more than £1,000,000.

Supporting the charity this year would help fund even more projects just like Sunbeams Play which provides support and opportunity to children and young people who are autistic through the delivery of age specific group sessions so maximise the achievement delivered in those sessions.

The project helps to improve the communication and social skills of the children and young people whilst also improving family relationships.
