One of the show’s many ap­peals

The People's Friend - - Remember When -

An­nual ap­peals – and watch­ing the fund-rais­ing To­taliser light up to­wards its tar­get – have been a high­light since De­cem­ber 1962. View­ers were asked to col­lect items such as stamps, coins and scrap me­tal, which could be re­cy­cled and sold to raise money for a good cause.

In even-num­bered years this would be for a char­ity abroad; in odd-num­bered years for one in the UK.

The first na­tion­wide “Blue Peter” Bring and Buy Sale was in 1979.
