This year, our School Council have decided to actively support BBC’s Children in Need. We have decided to do 3 things:
The One Show’s Matt Baker, and team, will be cycling their rickshaw from London to Glasgow. Their route takes them through Bolton-le-Sands on the morning of Day 6 of their journey, Tuesday 14 November. We are currently liaising with Lancaster City Council concerning the actual detail of the event but it is our intention to take children down to the A6 to cheer them along. We’ll be able to offer more details after half-term.
Pedal for Pudsey
This year, BBC Radio Lancashire presenters Graham Liver and John Gillmore are pedalling their PudseyMobile over 100 miles across Lancashire for Children in Need. On Saturday 11 November, there will be a family event, ‘Pedal with Pudsey’ where children and their families are invited to cycle or walk alongside Pudsey and the PudseyMobile. It’d be great for lots if us to go along – meet at Happy Mount Park at 1.30pm where there’ll be entertainment and the BBC Bus. Everyone will set off at 2.00pm and cycle down to the end point, the Battery in the West End. Should be great!
Friday 17 November
The big day for Children in Need this year is Friday 17 November. Children will be encouraged to come into school wearing spotty clothes and/or Pudsey ears, themed T shirts and the like. Donations will be given to Children in Need.
Mr Cross has decided to do his bit too! If he receives pledges totalling more than £1000 he will have his head shaved in the morning assembly!! If each child’s family is able to contribute a minimum of £3.00 then the target will be reached. Look out for a paper pledge letter straight after half-term.
