Spotacular! Schools go potty for Pudsey
Published on: 24 Nov 2016
HUNDREDS of school children were ‘spotted’ all over the Downend area for the annual BBC Children in Need extravaganza.
School children dressed in spots helped raise hundreds of pounds for children less fortunate than themselves.
Pupils at Stanbridge Primary school, Bromley Heath Primary School and The Tynings Primary School were among those who embraced the theme.
Pudsey and his home-made spotted friends helped raise £366.37 at Stanbridge Primary School.
Deputy head Andy McGovern said: “All of the children were asked to wear something spotty and bring a contribution. The outfits ranged from, amazing home-made creations, including spotty pants on the outside of trousers, to sparkly dresses. We all had a fabulous day and are so pleased to have raised money to such a good cause.”
Children at the Tynings Primary School also went Pudsey potty and also held a non-uniform day. The Reception children baked cakes and Pudsey biscuits to sell after school. In total, the Tynings Primary School raised more than £550.
Pupils at Bromley Heath Infant School also got in the fundraising mood.
Deputy head Kirsti Harris said: “The children came into school dressed in spots and did some running in the playground at break time to support Children in Need.
“They made some block models of Pudsey and they learned about the reasons why we fundraise and the good causes that can be helped if we do this.
“Our children had a lovely day and were very well behaved.”
