Video: 'Poldark' Helps Children in Need Raise Over £50m


Children in Need raised over £50 million last Friday night helped, in part, by the team from Poldark.

Four Children in Need project workers were treated to a day on the set and the chance to meet Eleanor Tomlinson (Demelza), Luke Norris (Dwight Enys), Jack Farthing (George Warleggan), Beatie Edney (Prudie), Christian Brassington (Ossie Whitworth) and Ross Poldark himself, Aidan Turner.

One of the charity workers, Razia Mohamed told the Bolton News: “It was amazing – filming only took place three weeks ago. I had to sign something to say I wouldn’t say anything – it was the hardest secret I have had to keep.
 “Home-Start Bolton receives Children in Need funding to help children and their families. We just received a phone call asking who was a fan of Poldark, and I said I was. It is my favourite television series.
“I was told I had been invited to have a look around the set with other fans. That was amazing – we never expected to meet the cast and have a part in the new series. I still can’t believe it, the cast and the people who work backstage were so nice and genuine and generous with us.

“Aidan is so handsome and so down to earth and I got to meet my favourite character George Warleggan.

Children in Need raised a phenomenal £50,168,562 last Friday, its highest on the night total.
