Pudsey Bear paid a visit to St Edwards Catholic Primary School, Sheerness on Wednesday 15th November 2017 to help them go Spotacular for BBC Children in Need.
Lloyds Bank and BBC Children in Need’s schools fundraising campaign, The Big Spotacular, has seen schools and nurseries across the country adding a spotty theme to their fundraising, whether they’ve organised a Pudsey picnic for their little ones, a spotty bake sale or a sponsored challenge for their older pupils, to raise more money than ever before for disadvantaged children and young people.
As part of the programme, and organised by staff at Lloyds Bank, Pudsey Bear was invited to surprise pupils at St Edwards Catholic Primary School where he met hundreds of pupils and teachers to thank them for their hard work raising funds and learning about the work the charity does helping disadvantaged children and young people across the country.
As part of St Edwards Catholic Primary School’s fundraising plans, pupils came to school in their pyjamas and had a cinema & popcorn afternoon
Mrs Wakefield, Heateacher said “We’ve really enjoyed raising money for BBC Children in Need this year. The children loved going spotty for The Big Spotacular. They were very excited to receive a visit from Pudsey and the team at Lloyds Bank. The pupils loved it and it was great to have a reward for all our fundraising!”
(Tanya Rabin, BBC Children in Need Partnership Lead at Lloyds Banking Group) said: “We are delighted to be able to have Pudsey visit St Edwards Catholic Primary School and meet the children and the teachers who have been fundraising for BBC Children in Need through the Lloyds Bank Spotacular. Our partnership with BBC Children in Need has played an important part of the Group’s Helping Britain Prosper Plan, helping tackle disadvantage and improving young people’s lives for the better.”
