Yee-Haa! Here’s a couple of rootin’ tootin’ Newton Tooton gals putting on the wild west style for Children in Need today.

Tracy and Laura, and Pudsey the Bear, have been doing their bit in Laura’s Shop in Victoria Street to raise money for the annual BBC appeal.

BBC Children in Need provide grants to projects in the UK which focus on children and young people who are disadvantaged. They are local to people in all corners of the UK and support small and large organisations which empower children and extend their life choices.

BBC Children in Need are currently supporting 2,400 projects all across the UK. The projects they fund help children facing a range of disadvantages for example poverty and deprivation; children who have been the victims of abuse or neglect or disabled young people.

Last year £37.1 million was raised for the charity.
