NO don't be alarmed, there has not been a mass outbreak of colourful chicken pox.

Instead kids across East Lancashire have been earning their spots and dressing up in yellow outfits and sporting a yellow theme in trying to raise money for Children In Need.

Lots of fun-filled activities have been arranged for school kids and in workplaces for today.

Each year, the BBC provide grants to projects in the UK which focus on children and young people who are disadvantaged.

They are local to people in all corners of the UK and support small and large organisations which empower children and extend their life choices.

DIY SOS came recently to create their Big Build inside the old St Silas Church Hall for Blackburn charity Nightsafe as part of Children in Need.

Don't forget to send in your pictures today and tell us any unusual fundraising activities you have been doing for Children in Need
