The boys and girls of Leswalt Primary also raised money. Official Pudsey headbands and wristbands were sold in school all week. Pupils also had a non uniform spotty dress up day and, primary 7 offered the opportunity for all pupils to fingerpaint a Pudsey bandana. The grand total raised in school is currently standing at over £120.

BBC Children in Need are currently supporting 2,400 projects all across the UK.

Pupils at Kirkinner Primary School dressed up in spots, took part in biscuit decorating, cupcake designing and assembling Pudsey Masks to raise a fantastic £48 for Children In Need last Friday.
