Pupils at William Stukeley Primary School in Holbeach dressed up as their heroes and raised £278.25, while students and staff at the Peele Community College wore fancy dress and raised £623.14. Student Tiegan Butcher also completed a sponsored silence and raised £100 all by herself.

There was a lot of excitement when Pudsey paid a visit to Tydd St Mary C of E Primary School, where pupils wore fancy dress and raised £155.

But it wasn’t just pupils and teachers who got into the spirit of the day, which helps children all over the UK. South Holland District Council staff wore fancy dress, had a cake and savoury sale, collected £1 coins and raised £1,220.
