Bradley Stoke Children in Need events start this weekend

BBC Children in Need 2011 - Pudsey Bear

Next Friday (18th November) is BBC Children in Need Day and here at The Journal we’ve heard of a couple of events that are happening in the build up to the big day.

Greggs the Bakers in the Town Square at the Willow Brook Centre are holding a fundraising event tomorrow (Saturday 12th November) from 11am.

They are planning a tombola, a “guess the number of balloons in the car” challenge, children’s competitions and a raffle. The store promises to reward participants with cakes and doughnuts to take home.

Over at Bradley Stoke Community School, students have organised a Variety Show to raise money for Children in Need on Wednesday 16th November starting at 6pm.

Tickets are available from the school office at £3 for students, £4 for adults and £2 for 11 years and under.

The school says the event will only go ahead if sufficient tickets are sold, so please show your support.
