Spots were sported across North Somerset this year, as hundreds of people turned out to support Children in Need.
Schools were out in force to raise money for the charity, which aims to provide a safe, happy, secure environment for children across the UK.
Many schools invited pupils to come in wearing Pudsey’s trademark spots, in return for a small donation.
At Kingshill Church School in Nailsea, spots were certainly the pattern of the day.
Dressed as the big-hearted bear himself, pupils helped to organise an after-school fair to raise money for charity.
At Court de Wyck Primary School in Claverham, pupils came dressed in pyjamas, with their favourite teddy bear in tow.
There was also a guess the name of the teddy competition and a bake sale was held after school.
Pupils from Yatton infant and junior schools got creative making their own Pudsey T-shirts for Children In Need.
