YOUNGSTERS strode out yesterday to do their bit for Children in Need.

Dressed in their pyjamas and onesies children at Worsthorne Primary School had a lazy day to raise money for those less fortunate.

They weren’t the only ones doing it for Pudsey Bear, with others going spotty, some embracing the ‘bear’ make-up look and many wearing fluffy ears.

The loveable yellow mascot, famous for his eyepatch, even dropped in to some events.

It wasn’t just the little ones either getting involved. BBC Radio Lancashire presenter Graham Liver came to the end of his bed push from Pudsey in Yorkshire to Bare, near Morecambe.

The stunt was made possible thanks to apprentices at Darwen-based WEC Group who made the bed frame.

The charity helps 47 projects across Lancashire with grants totalling £3,398,742 given to causes.

Worsthorne headteacher Louise Young said she was extremely proud of the children’s hard work fundraising.

She said: “It was a school council idea to line up pound coins in the hall to see which class had the most and also get everyone coming in their pyjamas.

“I think it was a fantastic idea and I am really proud that they wanted to fundraise for children less fortunate than themselves.”

Elsewhere in East Lancashire, St Christopher’s CE High School in Accrington, Roe Lee Primary in Blackburn, Nelson and Colne College, Springfield Primary School in Burnley and Helmshore Primary all made an effort to raise funds.
