Pawfect: Over £700 raised for Children in Need
To celebrate Children in Need 2018 on Friday 16th November, one of our lovely team members, Maureen, brought in her dog for some cuddles.
Bob, an Old English Sheepdog, enjoyed a pat and a hug with guests and team members at Potters in return for a donation, which we think is one of the nicest ways to raise money for a wonderful cause!
In addition, some of our guests dressed up in their Pudsey pyjamas to raise money on the day.
Potters Friends Foundation matched the money that cuddles with Bob raised, bringing the total raised to £721.61.
A massive thank you to everyone for their kind donations and getting involved.
Children in Need is the BBC’s official UK charity and raised a total of £60.7m for disadvantaged children across the country in 2017.
The charity is currently supporting 2,400 projects helping children facing a range of disadvantages, such as poverty, abuse or physical disability. A record-breaking £50.6m was donated during Friday’s live TV programme, with money still being collected.
