Fundraisers busy raising cash for Children in Need 2013

Hardworking fundraisers have been busy raising cash in support of Children in Need. Fun-filled events were staged across Maidenhead, Slough and Windsor last week as supporters did their bit in amassing a record-breaking nationwide haul of £31m, destined to support children and young people in the UK.

  • A teddy bears' picnic at Millward House Day Nursery raised £125 for Children in Need.

Tina Evans is the chef at the nursery in Collingswood Road, Farnham Common and she created tasty plates of bear shaped shortbread.

Deputy manager Tessa Crucefix said: "It was a teddy bear picnic but we gave the children leeway to bring other favourite animals as well."

So there was the occasional monkey tucked away among the bears - although everyone was sure that Pudsey would not mind.

  • Cakes made at school or at home with parents provided a scrumptious treat for nursery and reception pupils at Eton Wick School on Friday raising £200.

Parents joined pupils at the school in Sheepcote Road tucking into the tasty treats and everyone remembered what a good cause this particular 'cake sale' was in aid of.

Many of the children had tested their culinary skills in the classroom under the watchful eye of their teachers. But several mums and dads at home had let their youngsters loose in the kitchen.

  • A photo opportunity with Pudsey himself helped pupils from St Piran's School raise £100.

The famous bear dropped by to make a special appearance at an assembly at the Gringer Hill on Friday much to the delight of about 200 students.

Teacher and organiser Gemma Watkins said: "Children and adults gave a donation to have their picture taken with Pudsey Bear. Everyone loved it."

  • The Cookie Monster was guest of honour at a special pyjama party at Datchet St Mary's CE Primary School.

Pupils, parents and teachers at the school in The Green donned onesies and other comfy bedwear on Friday, raising £179.69.

Nikki Hoffman, PTA chairwoman, said: "The children had a fantastic day."

  • Youngsters at Westborough Pre-school in Maidenhead also donned pyjamas to raise cash for Children in Need.

A cake sale as well as face painting were among the activities which took place on the fun day on Friday, raising £50.

Maria Sams, who works at the Westborough Road school, said: "We are so very proud of all the staff, children and parents who took part and gave such generous donations."
