Caring residents, colleagues and classmates went fundraising mad – 
all in aid of Children 
in Need.

Thousands of big-hearted folk across South Yorkshire hosted a range of fun events for the annual appeal, which supports disadvantaged children in the UK.

Youngsters and teachers at Anston Park Infant School, near Rotherham, held a pyjama and teddy bear fundraising day in the spirit of Children in Need mascot Pudsey Bear.

They put on their very best PJs, dressing gowns and onesies and made a donation to the charity to join in the cosy event.

Elsewhere, the Beighton Lifestyle Centre in Sheffield raised funds during the daytime by brewing up for a charity coffee morning.

They later continued their efforts with a quiz night and pie and pea super, where some attendees chose to don fancy dress.

Lloyds Bank staff at The Moor branch, Sheffield, also made their charity efforts go the distance.

Throughout the day customers helped the team to raise funds through a raffle and cake sale.

And before closing time some brave employees doused themselves in freezing cold water as part of a Children in Need ice bucket challenge.

By contrast, Sheffield personal trainer James Bond was turning up the heat by attempting to do 60 rounds of three-minute punch bag boxing at the city’s Powers Martial Arts Academy.

For the third year in a row Robins and Day Sheffield South car dealership joined fellow Peugeot garages across the country in a ‘Dynamic Duo’ fundraising mission of superhero proportions.

Busy staff at the dealership on Handsworth Road, transformed into caped crusaders for a host of Children in Need fundraising events.

These included car washes and bake sales as well as more taxing challenges in the run up to the charity day, such as sponsored runs, cycles and abseils.
