BBC Children in Need

We fund people, projects and charities to change young lives in the UK

Charity Registration No. 802052 (England, Wales) SC039557 (Scotland)


This donation goes in memory of Ianto Jones, a fictional character from BBC series Torchwood, who was loved by many people all over the world.

He might be fictional, but his very existence had a huge impact on our life. He made us laugh, he made us cry. He was one of a very few LGBT characters who weren't a parody or just a tribute to political correctness in mainstream TV. He was simply a well-loved character. And his death left a lot of us as sorrowful and hurt as any death of a person close to us.

Though we, his devoted fans, still hope that he'll come back (it's sci-fi, and in sci-fi, death can be reversed, can't it?), we mourn him. In the series, he died saving the children of Earth; so it seems fitting to honor his memory by helping the Children in Need.

Mourning Fans

P.S.: We also want to express our endless gratitude to Gareth David Lloyd who played Ianto and made him so memorable and loveable.
