PEOPLE of all ages from across Bridlington have rallied round to show their support for Children in Need.

Pictured are just some of those who got involved in a variety of wacky and fun activities to help raise thousands of pounds for the BBC appeal which this year has raised more than £26 million for children and young people across the UK.

The Roundtable raised more than £1,900 on their collection trail around Bridlington dressed as popular children’s characters.

The group started off with breakfast at the Times Gone By cafe, on Hilderthorpe Road followed by visits to the area’s primary schools including Bempton, Flamborough, Martongate, Our Lady and St Peter, Quay, Boynton, Hilderthorpe, Bay and Burlington.

The group has thanked the Bull and Sun for putting on free food and dinner and the Telegraph for putting on free refreshments while they counted up the money.

Children at Flamborough Pre-School were also busy baking buns, which they hand decorated and sold at a coffee morning for parents during their ‘going posh for Pudsey’ day which raised £31.

Pupils at New Pasture Lane Primary School raised £101 by holding a non-uniform day.

Students at East Riding College raised £205 by hosting a variety of activities including a rowing contest, a bun sale, and a pop up business event.

And student James Supattra took along his 10-year-old Macaw called Henry who posed with students for a photograph in return for a donation.

Students at Headlands School held a cake sale to raise £180 for the charity.

And fund-raisers were bathing in beans and having their legs waxed at the Seabirds, on Fortyfoot, in Bridlington, to raise more than £500.
