Children in Need 2014 sparked numerous good deeds across the borough last Friday (November 14).

Students at Ark William Parker Academy took part in a special mufti day.

The student leadership group rose to the challenge and decided to organise a number of events.

During break and lunch time students took part in a competition to guess the number of balloons in a Mini which was kindly supplied by a member of staff.

Students even used their maths skills to find the answer by working out the volume of the car and the volume of a balloon.

In another event 20 staff volunteered snippets of information about themselves.

Students had to guess who the teacher was, and to add to the challenge they also had to use a little geography and locate the numbered Pudsey sticker as well.

Some of the facts included which male teacher is qualified as a masseur, which teacher was in a boy band and which member of staff has completed the highest bungee jump in the world.

A “Name the Pudsey” competition was also held in the library;

Blacklands Play Group raised £50 dressing in their pyjamas and onesies.

The groups uses the church building every day.

Reverend Paul McMichael, senior minister for Elim Church in Elphinstone Avenue, said: “The children, staff and myself the pastor of the church, all dressed in our Pjs or onesies all to raise money for Children in Need.

“The children raised more than £50, which I think is great.”

Dozens of babyballet stars danced in their pyjamas to raise money for Children in Need.

Babies, toddlers and pre-schoolers from babyballet Hastings and Eastbourne had a fantastic time dressing up at classes this week with their teachers raising £178.56.

Prinicpal Jade Wilkinson said: ”The support for Children In Need was brilliant and all our little stars looked great in their pjs.”

Nationally, babyballet is hoping to raise in excess of £8,000 for the charity.

The Gables Day Nursery in St Leonards we held a cake sale and raffle all week to raise money for Children in Need.

The children learned about those who need help through their own Pudsey Bear, making up a story about him through the week, about where he lives, who his friends are, how he helps people.

They even made Pudsey a special house to live in. They raised £118.10.

Helenswood Academy staff and students held a fancy dress day. Students also sold cakes and made book marks to sell. Their efforts raised £1,043.79.
