SCHOOLS across Eastwood and Kimberley had non-school uniform days and sold Pudsey Bear cookies to raise money for Children In Need last Friday.

Kids at Brinsley Primary School had the theme super heroes and villains, while kids at Kimberley Primary School, Hollywell Primary School and Lynncroft Primary in Eastwood all dressed in spots for the day.

At Hollywell Primary, some of the pupils made cakes and sold them at break time to add to the school’s total of £269.

There were also generous donations from parents, said headteacher, Denise Pilkington.

“It all went really well. All the children and the staff were dressed in spotty things and the cake sale was brilliant,” she added.

Lynncroft Primary School raised £130.

As well as fancy dress, children sold cookies and cakes and had a toy sale.

Molly Naylor and Holly Calow made 3D posters to promote Children In Need and Holly wrote and published a magazine that was sold at the toy sale.

Headteacher Sara George said: “Children brought in their favourite teddies and they all enjoyed a Pudsey Bear cookie made especially for us in our school kitchen by Paul, our chef. The ingredients were paid for by school council ensuring that every penny was able to go to charity.”

Brinsley Primary School raised £66 and Kimberley Primary School raised £165 from non-uniform donations.
