Schools and communities threw themselves in to fun fundraising again this year to push up the millions of pounds in cash to benefit Children in Need.
Isle staff and pupils were among those who got involved across the region, in efforts that ranged from cake sales to dressing-up days, record-breaking attempts or being simply silly to pile cash up to tip in to the worthy charity’s coffers.
At Crowle Primary School, pupils and staff costumed up for the day as stunning super heroes and paid for the privilege, while older pupils at the The Axholme Academy got teachers to join in their non-uniform day, with a bumper chocolate raffle held to raise even more cash for the cause. As a further money spinner two willing Sirs were sponsored to wear bright pink nail vanish for the day.
The final total notched up to £209.75. A staff spokeswoman said: “We had a great day. The children always enjoy dressing up.”
Other efforts across the Isle and Doncaster saw fun days packed with entertainment and challenges, surprise visits from Pudsey Bear, a bid at establishing a tap dancing record, and girl guides’ participation in producing the longest super-hero cape ever made - that was shown on BBC television’s Blue Peter programme.
Here are just a few photos of the colourful day,with superheroes from Crowle Primary Academy, and a teacher-in-glitter from The Axholme Academy.
