Pudsey Visits South Farnham!
EXCITED children at South Farnham School welcomed a very special guest on Tuesday (15) during an assembly for Children in Need.
The charity’s mascot and international icon Pudsey Bear paid a surprise visit to the school in order to thank them for their past efforts and to “keep up the good work” ahead of this week’s annual telethon.
Children in Need chairman Stevie Spring was on hand to help Pudsey answer the children’s questions and to let them know that “each and every penny” raised goes to good use.
“We’re really looking forward to another record breaking year,” she said.
“Everything we raise goes to help another child in need, many of them right here in Farnham.”
She went on to explain how the charity has helped raise more than £840million to date and is currently funding 480,000 children across the UK.
“The work that the charity does is hugely important but it couldn’t be done without the help of children such as you and your fundraising efforts,” she explained.
“Thank you all for your continued support.”
Pudsey also thanked the children, saying: “It’s great to come to a school where so many children are doing so much to help. Thank you for helping me to help so many children in need.”
