Hundreds back Children in Need in Huddersfield
ALL the ingredients were there – the baked beans, the buns, the pyjamas and the teddy bears.
Hundreds joined in the fun as Huddersfield went mad for Children in Need.
l Crosland Moor X-Factor finalist Jordan Higo, joined children, parents and staff at Children’s Place Nursery, Lindley, at a balloon launch to raise cash for Children in Need.
The nursery raised £500 through the launch and a fancy dress event earlier in the week.
Staff at B&Q, Great Northern Retail Park, were busy raising cash all week.
Showroom manager Ruth Brook sat in bath of baked beans while store manager Dave Neaveson had his legs waxed.
Seasonal manager Richard Higgins had his head shaved while staff wore fancy dress and hosted a slave auction to raised over £2,000 for charity.
There was no need to get dressed for work in the morning for one group of shop staff.
Colleagues at pawnbrokers Herbert Brown at King Street turned up to work wearing pyjamas for a whole week.
The staff have also been baking cakes and selling them from a stall at the shop.
Children and staff in the Rainbow Room at Almondbury Junior School organised a coffee morning and afternoon for their parents to attend. They baked buns, biscuits and three special Pudsey Bear cakes.
Swimmers did 100 lengths with a sponsored swimathon at Huddersfield Sports Centre.
Children and staff at Honley Day Care raised money by wearing spots and stripes and bringing cuddly toys along for a teddy bears’ picnic.
Staff in the University of Huddersfield’s Research and Enterprise department raised money for Children in Need by baking Pudsey Bear biscuits and mini cupcakes. And a very generous donator pledged £50 if one member of staff got dressed up as Papa Smurf. They raised nearly £150.
