How you helped Children in Need
Everybody in Bucks was out to help Pudsey Bear raise as much cash as possible for Children in Need. Here are just some of the events that took place in the area – and didn’t they have fun

Sharon Hewitt from Chiltern Relocation, in Penn Road, Beaconsfield, came up with the idea following years of fundraising for Children in Need.
As this year’s fundraising event approached she and her team decided to do something different from the usual cake sales.
So on Wednesday, November 12, they sent Adventure Bear on the train from Beaconsfield to Marylebone.
The idea was for people to take on the bear, take a photo with him and donate via the Justgiving page.
A Facebook and Twitter account has been set up for Adventure Bear, who they hope will raise money for the Children in Need project.
Mrs Hewitt said: “We just thought we could do something different this year.”
She added: “It’s already going well he’s been to Birmingham and in London, we got a call from a man on a train who found him.
“He asked what he was supposed to be doing with it and I told him he had to take a photo, he wasnt’ keen but said he’d take one for the team. He donated £10.”
If you pick up Adventure Bear take a picture of him and post it using the hashtag #WhereIsAdventureBear or search for Adventure Bear on Facebook. Find him on Twitter @ Adventure_Bear.
