PUDSEY Bear paid a visit to Samuel White’s Infants and Hanham Abbots Junior Schools to celebrate The Big Spotacular, Lloyds Bank and BBC Children in Need’s exciting new school fundraising campaign.

The Big Spotacular is encouraging children and teachers to dress up in spots, sell spotty cakes and goods, and take part in spotty themed challenges, to raise more money than ever before for disadvantaged children and young people across the UK. 

As part of the campaign, and organised by staff at Lloyds Bank head office in Bristol, Pudsey was invited to surprise pupils at Hanham Primary Federation on November 30. He met hundreds of pupils and teachers to thank them for their hard work raising funds for BBC Children in Need.

Gabby Christopher, headteacher at Samuel White’s,  said:  “We were very excited to receive a visit from Pudsey and the team at Lloyds Bank. The pupils loved it and it was great to have all their support acknowledged. This visit from Pudsey has created a real buzz around the school and will no doubt continue to inspire the children’s fundraising efforts for BBC Children in Need for future years too.”

Pete Hutton, HR manager from Lloyds Bank head office in Bristol , said: “Lloyds Bank is proud to support BBC Children in Need and the thousands of schools doing spotty fundraising for The Big Spotacular. We’re really pleased that we were able to accompany Pudsey and visit pupils in Hanham.”
