Quoting seamus murphy:
Hi Nick I have a catolog that says 20,000 cards were issued for the Children in Need Telethon ????.

Hi Seamus,

It's definitely 200, 000 for this card. Possibly 20, 000 may have been issued in a special folder (not that I'm aware of) or part of some promotional activity.
It's likely just a typo though :) .
What catalogue did you read this in? I'm going by two Tintori catalogues here
