BBC Children in Need’s official mascot, Pudsey Bear, paid a visit to our students at Autism East Midlands Sutherland House School, Nottingham this week.

Pudsey Bear joined in the school’s morning assembly following the excited calls of the students. Pudsey amazingly appeared as Mick the Mike encouraged all the children to shout out Pudsey’s name in a rhythmic chant. After a minute of shouts of ‘PUDSEY’, he miraculously he appeared!

Throughout the assembly Pudsey danced, waved and listened to presentation by classes. Pudsey Bear also hugged and shook hands with many of our children and teenage students.

Mr Adrian Sugden, Head Teacher at Sutherland House School, adds

This has been part of Pudsey’s build up to Friday which is Children in Need Day. Pudsey also managed to have his photo taken with all the children, he told me later he would cherish his visit and had a brilliant time.

Mr Sugden also signed a special ‘spot’ on Pudsey’s car with a pledge that school staff and students will help to fundraise throughout the week for Children in Need.


We would like to take this opportunity to thank Pudsey Bear for taking the time during his busy week to visit us and we wish all the very best to everyone fundraising for BBC Children in Need.
