A Norfolk social enterprise group is working with the regions schools to raise money for Children in Need.

Norwich-based group, Inspired Youth, have already raised more than £500, and are hoping to raise far more, for the BBC charity.

Their Pudsey 100 challenge will involve ten schools, 100 businesses, and 300 students.

The group will visit schools and businesses each day, with the aim being to decorate 100 Pudsey bears in seven days.

The challenge will run from Monday, November 13, to Friday, November 17.

And special guest Pudsey Bear is even due to make an appearance during the week, with a BBC camera crew.

Businesses including Potters Resort, Indigo Swan, Glow VA, and Zigis Fireplaces have already sponsored the challenge.

Any businesses or schools who are interested in getting involved should contact Inspired Youth. Donations are being accepted here.
