Youngsters from the Severn Academies Educational Trust took part in activities including dressing in spots, holding cake and biscuit sales and making a coin mile for the annual BBC fundraiser last Friday (November 19).

Pudsey Bear visited Hartlebury CE Primary School where the children raised more than £200 by dressing in spots, Wolverley Academy Primary collected £325 from donations from their Wear Whatever you Want Day and wristband sales and associate trust school Far Forest Lea Memorial CE Primary raised almost £200 from events including a biscuit sale.

Stourport Primary Academy’s donations and coin mile raised around £250, while at Wilden All Saints CE Primary pupils filled a giant Pudsey cut-out and wore spots to collect £254 and pupils St Bartholomew’s CE Primary spotty dressing up day raised £134.

Year 12 student Lydia Sztybel at The Stourport High School and Vlth Form College made an indulgent chocolate cake to raffle, which contributed a big slice of the school’s £130 total.

Chris King, trust chief executive, said: "Another great effort for Children in Need. I’m always impressed by the generosity of our children, their parents and our staff."
