Hit makes £170,000 for Children In Need
Tuesday 08 December 2009
Peter Kay's chart-topping animated hit has raised at least £170,000 for BBC Children In Need, it was announced today.
The figure has been raised after clocking up more than 265,000 sales - as of yesterday - for sales of the CD, DVD and download of the track.
Kay spent months putting together the medley by the Animated All Star Band which brings together dozens of children's TV characters.
Among those featured in the video are Bob The Builder, Andy Pandy, Bagpuss and Postman Pat.
Kay plays Big Chris in children's TV hit Roary The Racing Car and the programme's makers, Chapman Entertainment, put the video together, teaming up with record label Sony to release the single.
