We have been inundated with your fabulous photographs of fundraising fun for Children in Need.

Onesie days, cake sales, sponsored walks and superheroes have all done their bit to raise cash for the brilliant BBC charity.


Abbey Gate College

Abbey Gate College raised £1532 for Children In Need with a onesie day, a large tuck shop, sixth form v Year 11 football match, limbo competition and ‘pie the teacher’.

Staff also dressed up including head of technology Dave Stockley as the BFG.

The day was organised by the sixth formers, led by Year 13 student Holly Jenkins, and started with a funny and thought-provoking assembly on the role of Children In Need.

Belgrave Primary School

Children and staff at Belgrave Primary School dressed up in pyjamas and onesies for Children in Need and raised funds by sticking coins on Pudsey and buying cakes.

Hundreds of cakes were donated by families and the remaining cakes were sold at a Pudsey Coffee Morning at Chester City Baths on Saturday with all money added to the Belgrave total.

The final amount raised was £644.20 and the school would like to thank everyone who donated.

Cuddington Primary School

Pupils at Cuddington Primary were ‘fined’ for turning up to school in their pyjamas and onesies to raise an amazing £500 for Children in Need.

A cake sale held on the same day, with cakes donated by the school staff, raised a further £212 for the Philippine Disaster Fund.

Ashton House Nursery

The children and staff from Ashton House  Nursery in Chester  dressed up in their  pyjamas and onesies,  and raised £494.

Dee Point Primary

Children at Dee Point Primary spent the day dressed up as heroes, raising a huge £296 for  Children in Need. 

The children looked fantastic, filling the  school with spidermen, princesses, Toy Story  characters and even  Scooby Doo!

The children had great fun, dressing up as their favourite hero for the day, supporting a brilliant cause.

For an extra 50p, Dee Point children took part in a hero challenge, ranging from tiddlywinks to hula hooping and musical bumps.

Teacher Kate Lewis said: “Although there were lots of winners in our challenges, the real heroes were the children who were amazing all day long.”

Chester Cathedral

A church organist has raised nearly £3,000 for BBC Children in Need after a whirlwind cathedral tour of England which included a stop in Chester.

Christopher Nixon, who plays the organ every Sunday at Christ Church, Coatham,  Redcar, accepted a challenge set by BBC Radio Cleveland which took him on a marathon journey around all 53 cathedrals in England in nine days.

Christopher travelled 1,850 miles to play the organ at every cathedral in England - all in a bid to raise money for BBC Children in  Need.

Christopher was joined by the BBC Children in Need mascot Pudsey Bear and was welcomed by Heritage manager Nick Fry, Dean of Chester Cathedral The Very Revd Professor Gordon McPhate and the Lord  Mayor and Lady Mayoress of Chester. He  performed a short 15 minute organ recital on the cathedral’s Victorian organ.

Nick Fry said: “We are very pleased that Christopher and Pudsey came to visit us at  Chester Cathedral. Children in Need is a great cause that we are only too happy to  support.”
