Kind-hearted Lancashire folk took part in an array of activities to raise cash for Children In Need.

Nurseries, schools, workplaces and community groups were among those who took part in fundraising events for the charity appeal.

Children at Elizabeth Saunders Nursery School in Longton enjoyed dressing up in pyjamas to raise money for the appeal.

Meanwhile Runshaw Adult College students from the School of Adult Social Care and Childhood Studies organised a cake bake, covered a Pudsey Bear in coins, raffled a delicious chocolate orange Pudsey Bear cake and attended college in fancy dress.

Youngsters at Cuerden Nursery School in Bamber Bridge held a week of fundraising events including a bake sale and children attended in pyjamas one day and in fancy dress another day.

They also had a bath of mess day where they sat and played in beans, jelly, spaghetti, custard and rice pudding.

The nursery’s charity events have raised £100 for the appeal.

And over at Tarleton Holy Trinity Primary School children raised money for Pudsey’s Piggy Bank.

Headteacher Stephen Smith said: “The week set off with an Underpants Drawing Competition supporting the Blue Peter CIN appeal.

“We have been selling Pudsey wrist bands and keyrings all this week and the children came dressed as a hero.”

The annual television extravaganza topped last year’s effort of £31 million raised on Friday night, bringing in £32,620,469 for disadvantaged children and young adults in the UK
