Children in Need fundraisers have been held across Weston-super-Mare and North Somerset today (Friday).
A large number of schools have held events to raise cash for the annual appeal.
Teachers at Windwhistle Primary School encouraged their pupils to leave their uniforms at home and to come in their own clothes, with many wearing Pudsey-themed items.
Milton Park Primary School also ran a cake stall, where everything from jam tarts to homemade cupcakes were sold to raise crucial pounds and pennies.
A charity dance was held at Uphill Primary School this morning too.
