ACROSS the region fundraisers are showing their spots and collecting cash for Children in Need ahead of tonight’s TV marathon.

Visitors to King Edward IV School in Bury St Edmunds could be forgiven for thinking they had arrived at Hogwarts because staff and pupils are dressed as their favourite characters from the Harry Potter series.

While staff at Ipswich Building Society left their uniforms at home and instead turned up in their PJs this morning. They have been collecting donations from customers throughout the day to add to the national total.

EDF energy are supporting the cause and pupils at Horringer Court Middle School made a donation to take part in a series of African-themed activities, with proceeds going to the worthy cause.

What are you doing to support the cause? Don’t forget to send your news and photos, or a video of your antics, to suffolk.iwitness24.co.uk
