Dozens of FACET students spent this morning perfecting their Pudsey Bears as the charity college for adults with learning difficulties raised money for BBC Children In Need.
Arriving in spotty onesis and Pudsey costumes, the students and staff raised money for the charity by baking cakes and taking part in a Pudsey colouring competition.
Belinda Fowler was crowned the winner of the colouring contest before the entire FACET community posed together for a record-breaking photograph.
Manager Kris Harrold said: “I think it’s really important for our students to realise that there are other charities out there.
“Just because they are in a certain situation, there are always people who are worse off.”
FACET runs employability classes alongside numerous other lessons and activities for adults with all types of learning disabilities from its education centre and strives to focus on ability not disability.
FACET is always looking for new students to enrol for any of the courses on offer.
