PEOPLE across the region are going Pudsey potty with fund raising fun for Children in Need today (Friday).

Across North Devon people of all ages have donned fancy dress, baked cakes and hosted events to help raise money for the annual BBC appeal.

At North Devon Orthodontics Centre in Barnstaple, staff have donned animal onesies and are selling cakes and raffling off a giant Pudsey bear.

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

If cakes are what you’re after, Webbers Estate Agents in Barnstaple, Bideford and Braunton are selling cakes to fundraise.

And in Bideford, one woman has knitted a Pudsey dress out of bin liners and will be wearing it at Atlantis Adventure Park all weekend.

School, businesses, council offices and many more location will be taking part – we’ll be adding more pictures throughout the day so do keep checking back.
