Pupils at an Ilkeston school are celebrating after a visit from Pudsey Bear helped them to one of their greatest fundraising achievements to date. Youngsters at Stanley St Andrew’s Church of England Primary School raised almost £250 for BBC Children in Need through their ‘Best Assembly Ever’. The school, which has around 95 pupils, held a special assembly to mark the occasion, with the highlights including talents shows, a non-uniform day and the children taking over classes.
