SUPER PUPILS DRESS UP FOR CHILDREN IN NEED
Schools across Bucks hold fundraising events and dress up days for BBC charity appeal
TASTY Pudsey cupcakes featured in a nursery’s Children in Need event.
Children at Lindfield PreSchool Nursery, Chiltern Avenue in Amersham dressed up for the event on Friday, November 13.
Trustee, Nicky Feakes, said: “We supported Children in Need by dressing in pyjamas, doing spotty face painting, making Pudsey cupcakes and playing games like Pin the Nose on Pudsey.” STAFF at a school swapped their marker pen for a microphone when they took part in some charity karaoke.
Friday’s annual Children in Need fundraiser saw teaching staff at Chiltern Hills Academy, in Chartridge Lane, Chesham, take to the microphone to sing a range of songs at lunchtime in front of pupils.
Staff and students managed to raise just over £1,000 for Children in Need, which is the first time their fundraising for this event has hit four figures. Songs ranged from Ella Henderson’s Ghost, Shirley Bassey’s Hey Big Spender to a rousing rendition of Katy Perry’s Roar, through to the English department’s version of Don’t Stop Believing in the style of Glee.
There was also some raucous rocking out to Oasis’s Half a World Away and Chuck Berry’s Johnny B Goode.
Organiser of the event and director of Sixth Form Philip Miller was hugely grateful for those staff songsters who gave up their time and energy to perform karaoke in public.
He said: “Each year we try to come up with something a little bit different for Children in Need and this year’s effort has raised the bar in the amount of money we have raised. A fantastically tuneful effort all round.” THERE were super heros galore at one school to raise funds for Children in Need.
Children dressed up at St Mary’s School in Old Amersham and raised £ £324.80 for the cause.
Teaching assistant, D Dawn Lammin, said: “The st staff also dressed up and th there were a lot of batman outfits donned with optional ears and capes.
“It was a really enjoyable d day and the children all lo loved seeing the staff enter in into the spirit of Pudsey and lots of money was raised.”
The year six pupils made and sold some cakes and biscuits to raise funds for the cause. CHILDREN dressed up as their favourite superhero or in spots to help raise funds for Children in Need.
Little Missenden Church of England School pupils made a donation to dress up and the headteacher awarded prizes for the best dressed superhero and spotty outfit.
Tilly Blake, four, said: “It was great fun, I loved dressing up and playing games.”
The day raised £80 for Children in Need.
