There were lots of activities going on around Sleaford fundraising for BBC Children In Need on Friday.
At William Alvey Primary School in Sleaford pupils received a visit from Pudsey Bear himself. Children paid £1 to come in non-uniform and donated 10 pence pieces to fill outlines of Pudsey and Blush. Events were organised by the pupils’ school council.
At Leasingham’s St Andrew’s Primary School it was Wear A Hat Day, as children and staff came in all sorts of hats and paid a donation. The parents and children also made cakes for the children to buy, towards a total of £192 raised.
Pudsey also paid a visit to Ancaster Primary School and dropped into the new Sleaford Pop Up Shop run by teenage traders in Sleaford Market Place.
Billinghay CofE Primary School had a breakfast club with donations going to Children In Need. Children came in fancy dress and could pay to paint their own face, each others or have theirs painted by an adult.
Students paid to come in non-uniform or fancy dress at St George’s Academy and sixth formers held a slave auction at break time when there was some fierce bidding for their services.
Kesteven and Sleaford High School pupils paid to wear civvies, while staff took turns to ride spinning bikes throughout the day. St Botolph’s School pupils in Quarrington wore pyjamas for a donation.
Greggs staff in costume joined Pudsey Bear to collect donations, while WHSmith staff wore animal onesies and invited customers to guess the number of sweets in a jar.
