Children from Dizzy Ducks Mayflower Nursery, Billericay received a visit from Pudsey the Bear and went Spotacular for BBC Children in Need on 6th November.
Lloyds Bank and BBC Children in Need’s exciting new schools fundraising campaign, The Big Spotacular, is encouraging children and teachers to dress up in spots, sell spotty cakes and goods, and take part in spotty themed challenges, to raise more money than ever before for disadvantaged children and young people.
Pudsey Bear has also travelled the length of the country as part of the Spotacular Pudsey UK Roadshow
As part of Dizzy Ducks’ fundraising plans, parents paid £1 donation for children’s photos, they have had a sponsored walk and bike ride as well as bake sales. The nursery is hosting two weeks of fundraising activities to help raise money for Children in Need.
Leanne Tuffen, Nursery Manager said:
“The children absolutely loved having Pudsey at the nursery. He received lots of hugs and kisses. The parents have been really supportive and we hope to raise lots of money for BBC Children in Need this year.”
Stuart Beaver, Director, Partnership & Community Programmes at Lloyds Banking Group said:
“Our partnership with BBC Children in Need continues to produce fantastic results, in particular with the brilliant fundraising happening in schools across the country. The partnership continues to form an important part of the Group’s Helping Britain Prosper Plan, with education one of the key pillars in helping to address some of the big issues facing the people, businesses and communities of Britain today. Handing the fundraising planning over to the children was a great success last year, and it has been lovely to see so many schools and nurseries turn their fundraising activity Spotacular this year.”
