The Big Learner Relay For The BBC Children In Need 2022

The Big Learner Relay is not possible without you

What is The Big Learner Relay?

In brief, The Big Learner Relay is an annual event involving 100's of Driving Instructors and interested people raising money for BBC Children in Need.

The Mission

To relay a top box (the kind that driving instructors have on the roof of their driving school cars) from one driving lesson to another around the country and parts of the UK.

Buy Merchandise

Get yourself a Big Learner Relay hoodie or perhaps some Pudsey ears are your "must have" item for our 2022. Any pieces of merchandise your purchase all help to raise money for CiN.

Big Learner Relay Supporters

The Big Learner Relay is not possible without the extra help and support from some very special people. In particular, my husband Blaine Walsh who is also my best friend and fellow ADI. Thank you for having faith in my crazy idea eight years ago. Also Amy Cullen who is my sister and business partner – for dedicating her time and efforts to co-ordinating the massive logistical task of organising each year’s BLR. Also a special thank you to our supporters whose logo’s you can see below. Last but not least, thank you to YOU for getting involved and supporting this great cause for Children In Need.

BLR Songs

There’s nothing better than a good old sing-a-long to give you that feel good factor. Take a look at some of our catalogue of BLR songs from our wonderful BLT Choir (toe tapping is compulsory)
