SLIDESHOW: Pirates and pyjamas for Pudsey!

Pirates and pyjama-clad pupils helped do their bit for this year’s Children in Need appeal.

The national event raise more than £31 million for good causes and children’s charities across the country.

Kids at Cotmanhay Juniors dressed up as pirates to raise cash while pupils at the Ormiston Ilkeston Enterprise Academy sixth form wore their pyjamas to lessons and made a donation to the cause and raised £273.

Staff at the Erewash Clinical Commissioning Group dressed up for their day in the office and collected cash for the cause.
