OUTRAGEOUS costumes, wacky events, talent contests, sponsored running and a big yellow cuddly bear are all set to take centre stage as Children in Need fever returns with a bang.

Next Friday, November 14 people of all ages across north Suffolk will join forces with others from all over the UK to help raise valuable funds.

And all will have the goal to beat the £37m that was raised last year to support thousands of disadvantaged children and young people across the country.

Among those that have already organised events locally are pupils from Saint Felix School, Reydon, who will be taking part in a Mamma Mia! evening.

With the help of the Polly Webb Events Company and Saint Felix's director of dance - Tracy Marriott - the children will be learning song and dance routines from the hit film, which they will then perform for the public.

To try and raise as much money as possible, the performers will be paying to take part and adults in the audience are being asked to donate to watch the performance. The show starts at 7pm in the Silcox Theatre, at Saint Felix School.

In Lowestoft a sponsored pyjama and fancy dress walk has been organised. Locals are being encouraged to join in the walk, meeting outside Woolworths at 8pm and then walking to the Hotel Victoria for a party, raffle, disco and various competitions.

Tickets can be booked and raffle prizes donated by telephoning event organiser Craig Kulak on 07519 675 469.

On Saturday, November 15, a charity hand car wash will be held at Hillside Garage, in Bungay.

Send us details of your Children in Need events and possible picture opportunities by e-mailing mark.boggis@archant.co.uk or writing to Lowestoft Journal, 147 London Road North, Lowestoft, Suffolk, NR32 1NB.
