Tell us about your Children in Need fundraising fun

BIG-hearted volunteers are preparing to pull in the pounds for Pudsey as the BBC’s annual festival of fund-raising—Children in Need—makes its annual appearance.

Schools and workplaces across the borough will be full of folk inspired by the yellow bear with the spotted bandage as campaigners hope to smash last year’s total of £18 million.

The fund-raising has already started, with Pudsey Bear visiting Rotherham to show his support.

Members of the 9th Rotherham Scout Group welcomed the charity mascot from Pudsey Bear as he handed out rucksacks to Beavers.

The rucksacks, which each contained a variety stationery donated by retailers Costco Wholesale, will be used at meetings and day trips.

Pudsey was also at Wath Comprehensive School to meet the school council and back their fund-raising efforts.

The school is holding a raffle, penalty shootout and non-uniform day.

Pupils at Winterhill School have been making school life sweet for their classmates by running a Krispy Kreme doughnut for pupils and staff at breaktimes, with all profits going to Children in Need.
