Friday 18th November 2016 was a special day at Penruddock Primary School. Children and families had been hard at work all week preparing cakes and biscuits for the Great Penruddock Pudsey Bear Bake Off. Word of the preparations had got out and Children in Need decided to send none other than Pudsey Bear himself to school to find out about the exciting fundraising taking place in our school.
Not deterred by the snow, children arrived in school proudly carrying their boxes and cake tins, eager to show off their hard work to our celebrity guest. BBC Radio Cumbria were there too and children were interviewed live on radio not once but twice during the morning. Pudsey joined the fun for our special Children in Need assembly before having photographs with the children and some of their cakes. He even found time to join our Choir to rehearse their Carlisle Cathedral carols.
We would like to say a huge thank you to all of our wonderful children, their families and our talented staff team for helping to make the day such a huge success and helping us to raise over £450 for Children in Need!
