From fancy dress days to baths in beans, residents in Havering will be doing their part to raise money for Children in Need today.

If you are taking part in any events today, tweet @romfordrecorder so we can highlight your fundraising efforts.

The annual event is expected to raise more than last year’s appeal, which reached £32.6m.

However, businesses, schools and groups across Havering have already hosted a number of events to raise money for the charity.

Pudsey came to visit pyjama-clad pupils at James Oglethorpe Primary School, in Ashvale Gardens, Upminster, on Monday.

Deputy head teacher, Paula Sewell, said: “We are very grateful to BT Business Brentwood who organised Pudsey’s visit and it was a wonderful way for us to celebrate Children In Need.”

The money raised from the BBC initiative is used to make a positive change to the lives of disadvantaged children and young people in the UK.

The charity currently funds around 2,500 projects which are working with children facing a wide range of issue, from deprivation and disability to victims of abuse and neglect.

Pictures can also be emailed to rosaleen.fenton@archant.co.uk.
