Youngsters in Leicester raise cash for Pudsey cause
Tots got a big thank-you hug from Pudsey Bear as they helped raise cash for Children in Need.
About £400 was raised for the appeal at Kiddisafe Nursery, in Evington, Leicester, yesterday, with children taking part in cake and food sales and also making their own T-shirts to match Pudsey's spotty eye bandage.
Nursery employee Hetal Thanky said: "We do something every year for Children in Need and the kids all had a fab time.
"Pudsey Bear was having his picture taken with the children and their parents and we also had face-painting and T-shirt-making.

"A lot of the children came in fancy dress and we had some great superheroes, including Batman and Spider-Man.
"The babies all came in wearing their best pyjamas."
Other fun on the day included guessing how many chocolates were in a jar and throwing sponges at their nursery teachers.
More Children in Need fun will be going on all over the county today.
