PUPILS partied in their pyjamas while others went a bit dotty as people of all ages from across Worcester did their bit to support BBC Children in Need.
The appeal, which raised more than £26million during Friday (November 16) night's show, gave people an excuse to get involved in all sorts of crazy antics to help disadvantaged youngsters in the UK.
Pupils and staff at Dines Green Primary School ditched their smart uniforms for the day as they came in wearing pyjamas.
As well as taking part in the Party in PJs with Pudsey, children covered a life-sized Pudsey Bear with coins as the school on Tudor Way raised £172.
Clare Kilby, assistant headteacher, said: "We had a wonderful day and our thanks must go to the parents for their help in raising lots of money for this very worthy cause."
Broadwas CE Primary School also had a cosy feel to it as children stayed in their pyjamas to raise more than £100, while pupils at Northwick Manor Primary School collected more than £400 after they dressed in all things spotty.
Elsewhere, Wonder Woman, Bat Man and a cow were among the costumes worn by residents at Regent Care Home in St John's. They also decorated Pudsey cupcakes for afternoon tea and enjoyed live music as they raised £60.
