The Lions were joined by Pudsey as they hosted a collection outside Swaffham Assembly Rooms and the Co-op.

A total of £431 was raised and will go towards helping disadvantaged children.

Dennis Tallon, activities chairman, said: 'The joy on the children's faces when they spotted Pudsey was lovely to see and they would give him a big hug and say how much they loved him.

'The Lions are proud to be associated with such a great national occasion and despite the cold, wet weather, £431 was raised and will go directly to Children in Need.'
