Lympsham Preschool hosted a teddy bear’s picnic and is also looking to raise money for a children’s outdoor mud kitchen.

Pupils brought their teddy bears and cuddly toys along to take part in a BBC Children in Need Pudsey’s Teddy Bear Picnic event run by the supermarket Asda.

The school are also hoping to raise funds for a new mud kitchen through the Asda Foundation’s Green Token Giving Scheme.

Lympsham’s school has a token box in Weston’s Asda, alongside North Somerset People First and Weston Town Junior Football Club.

A spokesman for the school thanked its supporters for their assistance.

They said: “We would like to say a big thank you to the supermarket and the children loved it, Pudsey Bear being there was a fantastic touch.

“The money we receive from Asda, depending on how many tokens we get, will go towards funding a new mud kitchen which will provide children with more outdoor activities and imagination play at the school.”
