CHILDREN were seeing spots as they raised hundreds of pounds for the BBC Children in Need appeal.

Youngsters from Grove Lea Primary School wore their pyjamas to school on Friday. Members of the school council organised the event, which included a toy and cake sale and a raffle.

Teachers joined in the fun too and the school raised more than £480.

Deputy headteacher Sally Henshall said: “The children have really enjoyed themselves. It’s been really good.

“We managed to raise £482.81 and they understand what it’s all for too which is important.”

Meanwhile children at Fitzwilliam Primary School held a non-uniform day and a bring-and-buy sale on Friday and raised £415.

Headteacher, Sue Harrison, said: “It was a simple thing to do but the children really supported it and it was a great day.”
