Gallery: Schools go spotty as Fenland digs deep for Children in Need
DRESS-UP days, eating competitions and sponsored leg waxes have helped raise hundreds of pounds, as the people of Fenland did their bit for Children in Need.
Pupils from schools across the area followed Pudsey Bear’s example by dressing in spotty clothing to help with the marathon fundraising effort on Friday.
Children at Dots to Tots Nursery in Chatteris completed a host of activities, including a sponsored sponge throw in their newly designed all-weather garden.
At Sir Harry Smith Community College, in Whittlesey, sixth formers donned costumes, competed in eating contests and enjoyed watching one of their teachers have his head shaved for the cause.
Children and staff at Orchards Primary School, in Wisbech, raised more than �200 by bringing in coins to cover a giant Pudsey in the school hall.
