Treetops Day Nursery in Martham enjoyed a Teddy Sleepover Fun Day on Friday.
Staff and children came to the nursery dressed in their pyjamas with their favourite teddies. The youngsters built dens, shared stories, had a teddy bears picnic at snack time and enjoyed dancing and ring games.

Sarah Amis, childcare manager, said: “We all had a fun day in our pyjamas and our little nursery raised nearly £60 for Children in Need.”
The Asda store in Great Yarmouth got in the Children in Need mood by taking Pudsey Bear to schools, hospitals and children’s centres in the area.
