Children in Need hands out second round of grants

Charity distributes awards to 333 projects across the UK

BBC Children in Need has awarded grants worth more than £12m to 333 projects across the UK, it announced yesterday.

The grants, which are for initiatives that help disadvantaged children and young people, were made possible by the charity's November 2008 appeal, which has so far generated more than £37m.

This is the second of three funding rounds from the 2008 appeal. The winners of the third round will be announced in October.

The grants were worth between £780 and £160,954. The average award was £36,000 and funding was allocated geographically.
David Ramsden, chief executive of BBC Children in Need, said the money would "make a real difference to thousands of young lives".

The charity has published a list of winners by region.
