CRAZY hair and Pudsey masks filled the hall at a Port school as it raised money for Children in Need.

Pupils and staff at Newark Primary took part in a sponsored Pudsey Mile throughout the week.

The kids put their artistic abilities to the test when they designed Pudsey masks as part of a competition on Wednesday and yesterday pupils impressed with their crazy hair styles.

Teachers Kevin Campbell and Hannah Hall, who are on their probation year, took on the task of organising the events in a bid to raise as much money as they could for the annual BBC appeal.

Hannah said: “We wanted to do something to help so when organising events for Children in Need came up it seemed like the perfect opportunity to help and get everyone involved.”

Kevin added: “The pupils worked together on making a Pudsey mask for a competition and the winner from each class was announced at assembly. We were delighted with the effort everyone put in.

“The pupils also took part in a sponsored run after taking forms home with them and we loved their crazy hair.

“We didn’t set a fundraising target but we would love to reach £1,000.”

Quinn Mackie was one of the youngsters sporting a wacky hair-do yesterday - she spent 20 minutes in the morning ensuring her hair was as crazy as it could be.

Quinn said: “My favourite part of the week was helping the younger pupils make their masks. I've fundraised for charity before and I think we have managed to raise a lot of money for Children in Need.”

As well as having lots of fun the pupils also learned about the serious side, of where their funds will go.

Hannah said: “The pupils were all interested in finding out more about Children in Need and how they help other children."
