Joanne Hazard, of the Richmond School, said: “Staff and pupils of the school would like to say a big thank you to all the parents and family members who have helped.

Pudsey fever was also going strong at Hogsthorpe Primary Academy and Spilsby Primary School.

Pupils made a donation to Children in Need to go to school dressed in something spotty.

This followed a huge Skegness welcome for Pudsey when the One Show Rickshaw Challenge arrived at the resort on Tuesday night.
