Children in Need funding fun

Children in Need funding fun
A Children in Need fundraiser

NEWQUAY was seeing spots last week as Children in Need fundraisers took place across town.
At Bishops’ Academy, children and staff dressed up to help raise money for the national charity event, with each class bringing in coppers to try and fill in a giant Pudsey Bear face in the school hall.

Staff are still counting but believe the school has raised more than £250. Class teacher Jo Roberts said: “Pupils at The Bishops’ Church of England Learning Academy have been raising money for Children In Need. Children and adults dressed up in spotty or yellow clothes, and they also brought in loose change which they then arranged into the shape of Pudsey Bear’s face.  An enjoyable ‘spotacular’ day was had by all!”

At Newquay Junior Academy the students helped to host a charity cake sale, with parents and students having the opportunity to try Pudsey cakes and spotted Children in Need treats. The school also invited their charity for the year, Diabetes UK, to come in to help raise awareness.

Children at Happy Days Nursery Treloggan donned their Pudsey ears and spotted outfits to mark the occasion and staff helped organise a number of fun Children in Need activities.

Zumba fans helped to raise more than £450 for the charity when more than 65 Zumba fanatics danced and sweated to Latin and pop tunes across three hours.

Two classes took place including Zumba Gold, a low impact class, and Zumba Strong, a high intensity session which saw attendees performing squats, lunges, jumping jacks and even burpees – all in their best fancy dress outfit and Pudsey T-shirts.

Instructor and event organiser, Liam Broderick, said: “I would like to thank everyone who got involved, especially the Sports Hub at Treviglas College and the staff for use of the facilities and their support. For more information on charity Zumba sessions or the classes in general contact me on 07855 734984.”

Finally the evening of Children in Need was brought to an end in style over at the Farmers Arms pub in St Columb Minor when their fundraiser took place.

Attendees took part in a hook the duck competition, test their skill in a darts competition and attempt to guess the weight of a cake whilst the pub itself was decorated with Children in Need bunting and posters.
