Children at Newark area schools and nurseries sport yellow bears, spotty tops and odd socks for Children in Need
Yellow bears, spotty tops and odd socks were the order of the day as youngsters raised money for Children in Need.
The annual national fundraising day aims to improve the lives of disadvantaged children and young people throughout the UK.
Children at Newark area schools and nurseries enjoyed non-uniform days and other activities in return for a donation.
Pupils and staff at Lowe’s Wong Infants’ School, Southwell, combined Children in Need day with Odd Socks for Anti-Bullying Week. They raised £150.
Dressed in yellow at Bullpit Road Day Nursery, Balderton, children got involved in making bear-faced biscuits, colouring in Pudsey pictures, making headbands with Pudsey ears and a dance party.
Kids at Mount School, Newark, dressed in Pudsey-inspired outfits, including teacher Mr Terry.
Head Mrs Claire Kent said: “We raised just over £200 which was purely from a bucket on the gate as we couldn’t do our usual cake stalls and face painting this year.”
Children took part in various activities, including Joe Wicke’s Pudsey PE, colouring competitions and decorating biscuits.
Children in Need has raised £1.5bn in 40 years.
