Tots at a South Yorkshire nursery donned their favourite fancy dress costumes to raise money for Children in Need.

Youngsters at Little Ducklings Day Nursery, Wombwell, Barnsley, took part in a ‘crazy day’ for the BBC’s annual fundraising drive.

Wearing Pudsey Bear ears, the children enjoyed a bake sale and other activities.

Kerry Murdoch, director of Little Ducklings, said the nursery had so far raised £300, with more due to be donated.

She said: “We had a great day. Children and all the staff dressed up. We did a bake sale and the parents and staff donated homemade cakes.

“The children know all about Children In Need. We sit down with the early years pack with the children and go through it so they understand. The parents get involved too.”

The nursery has also teamed up with Greggs in Wombwell to fundraise.
