The pupils and staff of Belmont Secondary school, partook in numerous fundraising activities on Friday 16th November, in aid of Children in Need. Children could attend school in their own clothes, for a donation of 50p, though fancy dress or something yellow was encouraged, and both staff and pupils made a huge effort, sporting Pudsey merchandise and face-paints.
Other fundraising activities included a cake sale at break time, pin the ears on Pudsey, guess how many spots on Pudsey’s t-shirt and the annual Children in Need duck race sweepstake, which saw an undoubtedly ‘fixed’ win for Mr McGoldrick who backed ‘Pond…James Pond’ as the winning duck.
Jack Nightingale was winner of ‘guess the spots on Pudsey’s t-shirt’ and Henry Sandford managed to successfully ‘pin the ears on Pudsey’. The school managed to raise over £80 for Children in Need, and continues to plan for other charitable causes in the future.
