Here, Great Torrington School raised £1,091.95 with cakes and hot drinks on sale plus games and competitions including the very popular ‘Teacher Karaoke’ and ‘sponge the teacher’ events.

Petroc beauty students offered nail art to staff and students in return for a donation to Children in Need. Petroc beauty students offered nail art to staff and students in return for a donation to Children in Need.

At North Devon Orthodontics Centre in Barnstaple, staff donned animal ‘onesies’, sold cakes and raffled off a giant Pudsey bear.

In Barnstaple High Street, Boots staff joined in the fun wearing onesies, pyjamas, and dressing as Puss in ‘Boots’.

A colourful Monsters Inc character was wandering the High Street collecting for the charity.

Webbers Estate Agents in Barnstaple, Bideford and Braunton also sold cakes, while at Petroc beauty students offered nail art in return for a donation.
