We had a very special visitor to the Journal office this afternoon (Monday)...Pudsey!
The Children in Need bear was accompanied by BBC Radio Lincolnshire presenters Carla George, Scott Dalton and Simon Ross as part of their county-wide fund-raising tour on the run-up to the big day on Friday.
Their visit to Grantham also included a trip to Harrowby Infants School and several town centre businesses, all of whom have been very generous, said Scott.
He said: “It’s going very well, everyone’s very generous and we’ve even had people putting notes in.
“And Pudsey hasn’t made any children cry yet!”
Children in Need is a charity run by the BBC, which helps disadvantaged children and young people in the UK.
