It’s Children in Need 2013 and charitable chaps of Calderdale are going crazy to raise cash for disadvantaged children throughout the UK.

Calderdale schools are dressing up and down, selling cakes and more to raise money to help less fortunate children.

On Friday, November 15, Rastrick High School pupils are getting their own back - and electrocuting teachers!

Ling Bob Junior and Infants, Halifax, are wearing pyjamas for the day.

Children across the region will be wearing their ‘onesies’ to school.

Elland Junior School students are scribbling away on the day with children’s author Gez Walsh to write a poetry book for print that day.

Pudsey Bear will visit nursery students at The Poplars, Halifax.

Staff at Natwest Bank, Halifax, will wear pyjamas, hold a raffle and a tombola and hope to raise £1,000 for charity.

Flashing some flesh for charity, underwear models will dress the window of Elland’s Anon Lingerie in a 24-hour model-athon.

Employees of Leeds Building Society, Halifax, are holding a sponsored non-uniform and fancy dress day.

Dews Garage, Halifax, held a fancy dress for employees on November 8 and raised £60.

The annual appeal show extravaganza will be live, on November 15, from the new BBC Children in Need Studio hosted by presenters Sir Terry Wogan, Tess Daly, Fearne Cotton, Zoe Ball and Nick Grimshaw.

Sir Terry Wogan said: “Every year the night is testament to the extraordinary generosity of the British public.”
