Pudsey Bear Fashion Designer  bears for Children in Need

BBC Children in Need have decided to go a teeny bit upmarket in one of their many fund raising initiatives this year, by launching the Designer Pudsey Collection, which has seen a number of fashion designers use their creative flair and remarkable talents to create their very own unique version of the iconic poorly eyepatch-wearing ted, Pudsey Bear! Wowers!

If you want to bid for a bear, (reserve price £200 each, but it's all for charidee) or simply donate some cash, head for bbc.co.uk/pudsey

BBC Children in Need is a brilliant charity to support because it makes grants to over 2,000 voluntary projects, community groups and registered charities who offer practical, lasting support to children and young people experiencing poverty, deprivation or homelessness, suffering from illness, abuse, distress, or neglect, living with learning difficulties, sensory or physical disabilities, or behavioural or psychological disorders.

For every penny donated to BBC Children in Need, a penny goes to projects helping disadvantaged children and young people right across the UK, this is because the charity uses its investment income and gift aid to cover running costs. How admirable!
