A Falkirk school won a visit from a very special caller recently as part of a national campaign in aid of Children In Need.

Pudsey, the iconic BBC fundraiser mascot, popped into Limerigg Primary as part of the Pudsey Schools Roadshow tour.

It is celebrating schools across the country which are taking part in the Big Spotacular, the new schools fundraising campaign by Bank of Scotland and BBC Children in Need.

Limerigg Primary was one of just five schools nationwide to win the Pudsey Schools Roadshow visit, having signed up for a free Big Spotacular charity fundraising kit.

This year’s campaign is encouraging school children and teachers across the UK to go spotty for BBC Children in Need, with them dressing in spots and taking part in spotty-themed challenges to raise money.

Pudsey entertained the pupils with games, quizzes and music, and encouraged them to come up with the most imaginative ways that they can raise cash for Children in Need. The pupils even received the rare opportunity to pose for photographs with the BBC mascot.
