SUPERHEROES, pirates and characters from story books have all been turning out in Lowestoft today as the town embraces Children in Need.

The annual BBC fundraising event has seen youngsters from the Tumble Tots group in Waveney and pupils and staff at Foxborough Middle School really “get into the spirit” of things.

The majority of youngsters aged between nine and 13 at the school in Foxborough Road all dressed up as “characters from story books” as part of a joint initiative by the English and PSHE departments.

PSHE co-ordinator Alex Sweetman and English co-ordinator Kirsten Stone organised a special day of fundraising fun for the worthy cause. Pennies on Pudsey bear proved popular, as the children and teachers dressed up for the occasion.

With Harry Potter look-a-likes, fairy stories and Star Wars all proving popular there was something for everyone to admire.

And Miss Sweetman said: “The children have been really, really enthusiastic about taking part and raising money for Children in Need.”

At sessions in Carlton Colville and Oulton Broad, young tots and staff from the Tumble Tots group were all dressed up as pirates as they raised funds for the charity extravaganza.

Staff at Asda have also all dressed up in fancy dress as well to fundraise for the worthy cause.

And an evening event is set to take centre stage in Lowestoft town centre on Friday night, as further funds are raised for the 2008 Children in Need appeal.

A fancy dress walk will commence from Woolworths in Lowestoft at 8pm, with participants making their way through town, along the Bascule Bridge, and up Kirkley Cliff to the Hotel Victoria - where an after party shall take place on completion of the walk at around 9pm.

Be sure to buy next Friday's November 21 edition of the Lowestoft Journal, for a full picture report and rundown of all the fun at the fundraising bonanza in the town.
