Dyed hair, spotty clothes and a Pudsey Bear outfit were on show as children helped raise money for disadvantaged kids.

At Sidbury C of E Primary School, children’s hair featured colours from across the rainbow as kids took part in a ‘crazy hair’ day.

The children were encouraged to dye their hair all kinds of colours and bring a £1 donation to the Children in Need fund.

At Newton Poppleford Primary School, spots were the order of the day as kids swapped their school uniform for anything spotty.

Spotty t shirts, spotted skirts and even spotty faces made the day a hit.

Sidmouth Primary School played their part with a non-uniform day and Pudsey Bear featured heavily across the kid’s clothing even appearing on a tie.

Children in Need is a BBC charity that has raised over £950 million since 1980 for children and young people in the UK. Last year the charity raised more than £60 million.
