Children in Need - Making Pudsey portraits out of pennies at Old Dalby Primary School

The BBC charity has raised £1bn since it began the annual fundraiser in 1980 which aims to help children facing a range of obstacles including poverty and abuse.

Here’s another glance at what schools, pre-schools and groups got up to.

Members of the Melton Mowbray Rock Choir attended a big Grease singing workshop at Kelham Hall, along with members of choirs from surrounding areas. They raised £3,504.30 and had a fantastic afternoon.

Children and staff at Old Dalby Primary School dressed up to match the theme of heroes and villains for the day, as chosen by the school’s Prefects. Pupils worked together in their four house groups to see who could make the longest penny trail (children had been saving their 1ps and 2ps for weeks). They were then set the challenge of using their pennies to create Pudsey portraits. A colouring competition and cake sale contributed to a total of £225 for Children in Need.
