Schools and businesses throughout Formartine and the Garioch did their bit for Children in Need with a host of activities last Friday.
At Auchterellon School pyjamas or spots were the order of the day for both staff and pupils as they got into the “Pudsey” spirit.
An outdoor Pudsey fun course was tackled the youngsters throughout the day.
The school raised £1393.89.
Ellon Primary School raised £662.73 from various events including a pyjama day, selling cakes, putting pennies on Pudsey, holding an art competition and guessing how many sweets were in the jar. The money will be split between Children In Need and the Philippines Typhoon Fund.
It was Multi-coloured Meiklemill and the theme helped the school raise £672.40.
Pupils were dressed in bright colours for the occasion and brought a £1 donation for Pudsey.
The children had great fun filling jars to overflowing with coins.
Strathburn Primary in Inverurie raised a whopping £770.00 by dressing up in their pyjamas / onesies and ate tasty fruit kebabs made by Primary 6/7MP and 7S. The whole school got on board and dressed up, even the teachers!
Mitchell’s staff members Wendy Edwards, Craig Reidford and Colleen Henry, dubbed “The Three Blethers” held a sponsored silence which raised £125 for Children in Need. Mitchell’s pass on a huge thank you to there generous customers for their donations, and hoped that they enjoyed their “fly cups” in peace and quiet!
