Every year in November Children in Need raises money to provide grants to organisations within the UK for disadvantaged children. Many of the people in the UK donate and organise fundraisers in their community, schools such as the one my son attends had a PJ day and each donated money towards the cause. Pudsey Bear is the Children in Need mascot and the charity has made such a difference to many children to realise their potential since it started in 1980.
The stories that are documented through the BBC programme is both heartwarming and inspirational (I never fail to be reduced to tears on more than one occasion).

And here was what my boy was wearing for his PJ day at school – he said that everyone looooooved his slippers!
