Children at Sacred Heart and St Patricks were extremely lucky this year as Pudsey bear made an early appearance to meet pupils ahead of BBC Children in Need on Friday 17th November.

A huge thank you to Lloyds bank who arranged the visits on behalf of the Academy.

St Patrick’s Catholic Primary School had Pudsey join in to lauch a one-mile sponsored walk. St Patricks had already raised more than £350 and were still hopeful to raise more ahead of BBC Children in Need.

Pudsey bear also joined Key Stage 1 and 2 children at Sacred Heart Catholic Primary School for a one-mile run. The chidlren at Sacred Heart run their fitness mile every day and they thoroughly enjoyed having Pudsey bear join them and raise awareness for BBC Children in Need.
