Pudsey Bear takes Children in Need bus to West Somerset

PUDSEY Bear took a bus ride to West Somerset to promote this year’s BBC Children in Need appeal, which takes place on Friday, November 16.
He visited children attending Stogursey Primary School on Tuesday, November 13, before climbing aboard the BBC Somerset bus to tour other schools and shopping areas around Somerset.
This year, Pudsey has been revamped with a fresh new look and is encouraging everybody to ‘do something different’ for the charity and make a real difference to the lives of disadvantaged children and young people in the UK.
BBC Somerset Sound journalist, Andrew Enever said: “It is great to be able to take Pudsey out and about to meet people in the local community.
“He is a huge hit with the kids and we are really looking forward to taking him into local schools and shops to meet everybody raising money and donating.”
Children in Need is in its 28th year and aims to positively change the lives of disadvantaged children and young people in the UK.
Organisations which have received funding from the charity all work with youngsters aged 18 and under, who may have mental, physical, or sensory disabilities, behavioural or psychological disorders, or are living in poverty or situations of deprivation, or suffering through distress, abuse, or neglect.
