There was a heigh-ho lot of fun in mid Norfolk as groups, businesses and schoolchildren raised funds for Children in Need.
Pupils at Reepham High School and College did sporting battle with members of staff on the netball court, raising £87. Meanwhile, the college students went to lessons in their pyjamas, raising £200.
In Dereham, a week of Children in Need activities at Boots culminated with a Bollywood extravaganza, with saris worn by the female members of staff and kurtas by the men. Nationwide, it is hoped Boots will raise a record-breaking £1m for the cause.
And there was a day of fun at Teenie Iceni's Day Nursery at Swaffham Community Centre. Youngsters dressed up in onesies, made Pudsey ears and baked spotty biscuits and deputy manager Sam, who is known for making lots of noise at the day nursery, stayed silent for the day, raising £80 in sponsorship.
Meanwhile, members of the Swaffham and District Lions dressed up in Pudsey outfits and took to the town's streets to collect funds for the cause. It is hoped the total collected will reach more than £1,000.
