Time for the Movies

13th November 2015 Happening in Edinburgh & Borders

Pupils at Bonnybridge Primary School soak teachers & watch movies

Pudsey Bear paid a visit to Bonnybridge Primary School, Fife on Friday, 13th November to celebrate Champions of Change, a schools partnership between BBC Children in Need’s and its Principal Partner, Bank of Scotland.

Launched this year, Champions of Change is an initiative to get school children across the UK involved with fundraising for the much loved charity. Working with teachers and supporting the national curriculum, Champions of Change puts pupils at the heart of fundraising, allowing them to develop and implement their own ideas, helping benefit other young lives right here in the UK.

As part of the programme, and organised by staff at Bank of Scotland, Pudsey Bear was invited to surprise pupils at Bonnybridge Primary where he met hundreds of pupils and teachers to thank them for their hard work raising funds and took part in their Movie and onesie afternoon.

Jill Stocks, Head Teacher from Bonnybridge Primary said “We’ve really got behind BBC Children in Need this year, with our pupils becoming Champions of Change and taking ownership and developing some fantastic fundraising activities. As such, we were very excited to receive a visit from Pudsey and the team at Bank of Scotland. The pupils loved it and it was great to have all their hard work acknowledged.”

James Newell, Product Control Co-ordinator from Bank of Scotland said “Bank of Scotland is proud to support BBC Children in Need and the millions of young Champions of Change, like those at Bonnybridge Primary. Our partnership with BBC Children in Need sits at the heart of our strategy to Help Britain Prosper, and knowing that together we can help to make a difference and help change the lives of disadvantaged children and young people is fantastic. We’re really pleased that we were able to take Pudsey to visit pupils at Bonnybridge Primary to thank them for their fundraising efforts”.
