BIG-HEARTED Rotherham folk have been going potty - and spotty - for Pudsey.

The annual Children in Need day saw schools and workplaces pulling out all the stops for charity.

Kids at Ravenfield Primary School were sponsored to wear spots, while staff at the Bradmarsh Industrial Estate branch of Parker Rhodes solicitors, wore fancy dress.

Staff and services users at The Mews in Bramley, independent living accommodation for adults with learning disabilities, held a bun sale and ran a raffle and bric-a-brac stall, bringing in £698.92.

Students at Rotherham College donned onesies for the occasion, while reception staff went to work in pyjamas.

Members of 1st Rotherham Boys’ Brigade baked biscuits and made their own Pudsey Bear picture out of Lego.

Top marks for efforts to Rotherham United Community Sports Trust, who held a sponsored press-up challenge, and the team at Rotherham Leisure Complex, who invited members and non-members to join them in cycling to London on an exercise bike, bringing in just over £100 in the process.
