Blue Peter 25 Years on

2021 marks 25 years since Lepra's phenomenally successful Blue Peter appeal. We are looking to reconnect with those who fundraised for Lepra, all those years ago!

25 years ago Blue Peter ran a fundraising appeal for Lepra that would go on change the face of leprosy support and treatment in India forever. Children set up bring and buy sales across the country, and the response was phenomenal. £2.8 million was raised in total. So, 25 years later, we are looking back at where that money was spent and the incredible difference it has made to thousands of people’s lives. Over the course of the coming year, we will be releasing videos, archive footage, and major milestones that have been achieved thanks to the funding from this amazing appeal. 

We would love to talk to people involved in the original appeal and reconnect to once again change the lives of those affected by leprosy. If you were involved, or know of someone who was, please get in touch with us here.
