Youngsters at one of Norfolk's smallest schools were early birds yesterday as they donned pyjamas for Pudsey to raise money for this Friday's Children in Need television charity spectacular.

The 34 pupils at Hickling Infants School wore their pyjamas in the classroom and made Pudsey the Bear eye patches to help deprived or troubled children.

Each child donated a pound to Children in Need so they could ditch their usual school uniforms.

Staff at the school also donned their nightwear with headteacher Peter Wallis wearing a fetching set of red tartan pyjamas.
