Thousands of pounds were raised across North Somerset on Friday for Children in Need.
Pupils went spotty for the annual fundraiser, with dozens of schools holding events.
Children in Claverham held an after-school bake sale at Court de Wyck Primary School, while youngsters in Yatton upcycled their old shoes by decorating them in elaborate colours.
Students at St Francis Primary School in Nailsea sold goodies to boost the fundraising total further.
Children at The Nursery in Portishead enjoyed a Pudsey Bear hunt in the garden, for Children in Need.
