Pudsey Power swept through Chilton Primary School in Ramsgate.

The charity bear who spearheads the annual Children in Need appeal took centre stage as pupils and staff demonstrated they are charity champions.

Spotacular outfits created a colourful backdrop to assembly, lessons, and playtime as the school entered into the community spirit of the charity that has raised a staggering £1 billion for needy children since it was launched.

Painted faces and Pudsey onesies were among the favourites on show, as were a rainbow of outfits, tops, headgear, ties and bow ties in support of the 2019 appeal.

Staff joined in the fun on the non-uniform day as well, and the generous Chilton contribution was more than £380.

Head of School Kate Law said: “Chilton holds a variety of charity events and we are proud to support worthwhile causes locally and nationally throughout the year.

“The work of Children In Need is particularly important to us as it delivers much-needed funding, vital support, and resources to make a real difference to the lives of so many children and young people every day.”
