CHILDREN IN NEED returned with a bang this year, smashing previous records to raise £31million on the night with residents across Chester playing their part of a very successful night.

Staff at MBNA in Chester raised more than £2,000 by taking part in a ‘Great British Bake-Off’ style contest, with 58 year-old Steve Taylor being crowned the best baker.

Youngsters at Tinies@Stanlaw Abbey Nursery in Stanney Grange, Ellesmere Port, raised money by carrying out a sponsored walk wearing their pyjamas, with parents and carers joining in too.

Meanwhile children of St Martin’s Academy in Hoole came to school dressed as their favourite super-heroes and took part in Pudsey inspired activities throughout the day in order to raise money for the charity.

Girls and staff at The Queen’s School raised more than a thousand pounds by dressing up in neon for the day. In the senior school, girls and teachers dressed as iconic women from history as part of their fundraising ideas.
