From cake sales to caretaker gunging for children in need
Schools nurseries and businesses were busy finding and impressive array of ways to raise money for Pudsey last week as part of BBC Children in Need.
Long Melford Primary School raised money by having cake sale, wearing their pyjamas... and gunging Garry Aitken, the school caretaker. In total the school raised £35.
At St Gregory’s Primary School in Sudbury pupils were given £1 to raise as much as they could by setting up their own businesses, with ideas including cake sales and ice bucket challenges.
Little Angels Parent and Toddler Group at The Salvation Army in Sudbury saw the children dress up, have a bake sale and ice biscuits, raising £74.56.
At Glemsford Primary Academy there was a week full of activities. School council members sold festive wristbands, before everyone dressed up in spotty clothing for a best dressed competition.
Thomas Gainsborough School had a ‘spotacular’ non-uniform day and fancy dress competition, cake sale and quiz, altogether raising more than £700.
The most painful support for the charity came from three staff at Lloyd’s Bank in Sudbury where Warren Winter, Robert Kavanagh and Joe Buthelezi had their legs waxed.
This, alongside other activities including a danceathon and face painting, raised more then £200.
