We were thrilled to welcome Pudsey Bear and Stevie Spring (Chair, BBC Children in Need) to Brington School today, especially as Stevie told us Pudsey only visits about six schools each year, and they are usually VERY LARGE ones. Stevie explained how Children in Need had started as a five minute radio appeal back in 1927 and has since gone on to raise more than £850 million to help children 'in need'.
She said, "Every single penny matters. Whether you raise £5 or £50 or £500, every single penny goes to help children around the UK, I just mind that you're helping out. So I'm here to say thank you."
Pupils will be raising money next Friday by wearing spotty clothes and having a spotty cake sale. Some of our Year 6 pupils have also organized a 'Brington's Got Talent' competition, the winners of which will be performing in our special 'Children in Need' assembly next Friday (18th) at 2.20pm.
THANK YOU PUDSEY, for coming to Brington and we are really looking forward to next Friday when we will do our very best for 'Children in Need'.
