After an inspirational summer of sport, we're delighted to team up with British Gymnastics to get the nation active by jumping for Pudsey. They've created five Jump for Pudsey challenges, so join in the fun and get your friends and family jumping.

To help us reach our target of 1,000,000 jumps, we'll be hosting special 'jump events' across 100 of our stores on Jump Day (26 October). Pop along, jump up and join in to support disadvantaged children in the UK. Find your nearest participating store below and don't forget to add your jumps to our jump totaliser.

Check below to find an event near you:

The whole nation's jumping so keep adding your jumps to the online totaliser!

Why not get your own gymnastics team together and see how many leaps and launches you can tally up between you? Whether you're a budding Becky Downie or just fancy a bit of fun, don't forget to share your jumps with #JumpForPudsey

Other ways to donate

**Text to donate terms and conditions

  1. Text messages cost £3, plus your standard network message charge (based on your service provider rates). This service can only be used from a UK mobile and does not include Channel Islands or Isle of Man mobile networks. If you donate using this service from a UK mobile abroad you may incur additional network charges
  2. Your support will result in a £3 donation to BBC Children in Need (a registered charity in England and Wales, number 802052 and in Scotland, number SC039557) for each text message you send
  3. If your keyword and short code are valid and your text message is received within the specified times and dates, you will be charged £3 (plus your standard network message charge) via the reply confirmation text message and your donation will go to BBC Children in Need
  4. If your keyword or short code is invalid, or if your message is received outside the times and dates of the service, you may not receive a confirmation text message but may still be charged your standard network message charge
  5. You can send a text message between 12.00am on 19 October 2016 and 23.59 on 19 November 2016. Please ensure you spell the keyword correctly and send your text message to the correct number
  6. You can donate by text to 70313 a maximum of 10 times each day from the same mobile telephone number (midnight to midnight). If you try to donate more than 10 times in a day using the same keyword from the same mobile, you will still be charged your standard network rate, but will not be charged £3 for a confirmation text message and will not be donating to BBC Children in Need. For the avoidance of doubt this maximum is placed on the text messages sent with the same keyword to the same short code
  7. If you are a UK taxpayer, we can claim an additional 25p in Gift Aid from the Government for every £1 you donate. And it doesn't cost you a penny! To help BBC Children in Need claim this, we may send you a follow up text to ask if you want to Gift Aid your donation. For BBC Children in Need to claim Gift Aid, you must pay UK income or capital gains tax this year (this does not include VAT or council tax) at least equal to the amount reclaimed on all your charitable donations and understand that, if you pay less income tax or capital gains tax in the current tax year than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all your charity donations, it is your responsibility to pay any difference
  8. The text donation service is provided by Fonix Mobile Limited. If you have any queries regarding the service, please contact Fonix at the following email address: or write to Fonix Mobile Limited, 23 Heddon Street, London, W1B 4BQ or call on the following Helpline Number: 0208 114 7001 (Monday to Friday 9:00 - 17:30)
  9. All supporters must obtain permission from the bill payer before sending a text message. If you are under 16 years old, you must have your parent or guardian's permission
  10. Boots reserves the right to change these terms and conditions at any time without notice, so please check regularly for any revisions. The applicable law is that of England and Wales
