At Alford Primary School, yellow, spots, Pudsey Bear and Blush were the themes of the day.

Over £240 was raised for the charity and the school is grateful to everyone who supported them with donations..

Pupils at the Richmond School in Skegness wore an animal print outfit for the day and donated £1.

They also practiced mindfulness with Dr Ranj and worked out with Joe Wicks.

Storytime featured 'Goodbye Rain Clouds', which is designed to show how life’s difficulties can be overcome with the right support.

A series of short films about children with learning difficulties and medical conditions were also shown to promote inclusion and understanding. Year One made a list of things we are thankful for, which maybe some children don’t have.

The day was completed with Pudsey colouring and pupils learnt the Children in Need song and sang it.

Skegness Academy raised £674.87 from donations for a non uniform, an online donations page and from a cake raffle.

"Everyone had a fabulous day and it’s great for us to be able to support such a worthy cause," said Lara Oldfield, Senior Assistant Principal of Skegness Academy.

Tthe winner of the cake raffle was Miss Rebecca Close who is one of our Behaviour Support Assistants and it raised £78.
