Build-A-Pudsey for Children in Need

The BBC's Children in Need appeal needs little explanation to Great Britain's subjects. The appeal aims "…to positively change the lives of disadvantaged children and young people in the UK. Our vision is a society where each and every child and young person is supported to realise their potential."

The television event is on 14 November 2008 with many volunteers organising their own events on or around this date.

At the Build-A-Bear Workshop (a chain of shops where you can build-your-own - that's right - Edward Bear) customers will be able to make their own Pudsey Bear for £15 and best of all £5 of that price will be donated to Children in Need. If your newly made Pudsy or similarly sized bear needs a little dressing-up then Build-A-Bear Workshop sell an appropriate T-shirt for £5, of which £1 goes to charity.

Getting a bear made at Build-A-Bear Workshop is a wonderfully entertaining event for children and it's heartening to know that a whole third of the price will go to the good cause.

To donate directly or to get materials and ideas for you own fund-raising event, visit the BBC's Children in Need website.
