The spotacular programme invited schools across the country to do something ‘spotty’ in exchange for a donation to BBC Children in Need.

Whether it be a sponsored spotty challenge, selling cakes or wearing their spots to school in a non-uniform day, pupils across the borough participated.

Nationally Children in Need 2016 has raised a record £46.6 million.

The local events featured in this story are ones which the Melton Times was made aware of at the time of going to press.
