Plymouth pupils fundraise over £6,000 for Children in Need
Children and staff at Marine Academy Primary school in Plymouth, part of the Ted Wragg Trust, have had a brilliant day fundraising for Children in Need, raising over £6,000.
Children in Need raise funds to make sure they can be there for children and young people by funding thousands of local charities and projects. Their annual appeal in November inspires our communities across the UK to come together, raise funds and show support. In addition to wearing their most SPOTactular outfits to school today staff and students have been raising money by selling Pudsey merchandise and signing up to the sponsored RunPudsey.
Marine Academy Primary were especially lucky this year as they also welcomed a visit from Pudsey Bear, the iconic Children in Need mascot.
Moira Marder, CEO of the Ted Wragg Trust said:
“I am so proud of all the children and staff at Marine Academy Primary for the fundraising they have done for Children in Need today. It’s important for children to understand how they can help those in need and to have Pudsey visit just made the whole experience even more memorable!”
