Kids at Dalneigh Primary School wore their pyjamas to school for the charity effort.

They also brought in copper coins to donate, which they laid out on the ground and counted.

It was a welcome return of events for pupils as schools have been restricted in their fundraising efforts due to Covid.

Head teacher Rhona MacCormick said: “As a school we support Children in Need each year as we feel it is such a worthy cause. The children look forward to it each year and love dressing up in their jammies!

“We are very aware of the cost of the school day and went with collecting coppers so that we did not create an added expense to anyone. The coppers also allowed us to have lots of maths fun too.”

Pupils at Cradlehall Primary also abandoned school uniforms in favour of dressing in a rainbow of colours on the day.

The annual Children in Need fundraising extravaganza works to make sure young people across the UK have a happy and safe childhood.
