Need some inspiration? Just put those bear ears on, get out there and do daft things
BBC Scotland weather presenter Judith Ralston is switching from the TV screen to the radio airwaves for a Scotland-wide Children In Need tour.
Starting tomorrow, Judith will travel all over the nation to see how the money raised is used and the people it helps.
She begins in Aberdeen and will tour numerous schemes before ending up in Glasgow on Friday.
“The one thing that strikes me when I see these set-ups is just how the individuals are always so motivated and positive,” said Judith.
“That’s so inspiring. I’ll be doing reports into the various shows on Radio Scotland during the week and then challenging some of the presenters to do daft things when I’m back in Glasgow.”
Former opera star Judith has done plenty of daft things for the Children in Need cause over the years, including dressing up as Madonna.
That came during the high jinks of the annual fundraising night at BBC Scotland’s HQ.
“It was quite an outfit and we had another night where we formed a band called Nae Direction,” said Judith. “It had myself, Jackie Bird, John Beattie, Tom Urie and we did a couple of songs.
“It was really good fun and nice to do a few vocals again.” Charity does begin at home for Judith with her kids, seven-year-old twins Max and Georgia, and Alexander, 16, big supporters. “They get involved and you see them walking to school with their Pudsey ears on. So many schools take part, which is lovely,” she said.
