Pupils across the Sid Valley and East Devon put their hands in their pockets to raise more than £1,000 for Children in Need.

Students at Sidmouth College took part in a colouring-in competition to raise money for the charity and 11-year-old Marta Osinska was one of the winners who received a cupcake prize. The college raised £673. Sidmouth Primary School held a superhero-themed fun day with pupils dressing up as favourites such as the Incredible Hulk.

Their heroic efforts raised £438. Sidbury Primary School showed their colours by dressing in stripes and spots, some children even wore both. They raised £100 for children who are less fortunate.

Beer Primary School pupils were also heroes for the day with children dressing up as the people who inspire them including family members, historic figures or their favourite caped crusaders.

They also brought in any spare money to make a Pudsey Bear out of. They so far have raised £234 with the addition of an after school bake sale to come.
