FAMILIES across Andover took part in Children in Need day on Friday (November 19), by dressing up and getting involved in fundraising activities at school and work.

Each year, people across the country embrace the Pudsey Bear campaign to raise vital funds for causes supporting children who most need it.

BBC Children In Need has raised more than £39 million this year following its annual fundraising show.

The 41st year of the appeal show featured appearances from stars including pop group Abba, actor Stephen Fry, Strictly professional dancer Oti Mabuse, Olympian gymnast Max Whitlock and broadcaster Clare Balding.

Ed Sheeran, Tom Grennan and RuPaul’s Drag Race stars were among those to provide musical entertainment during the programme.

We asked our Advertiser readers to send in their pictures from Children in Need day, and they did not disappoint. This gallery showcases just some of the wonderful fundraisers in the town.
