Children in Need

Every year we accompany Pudsey Bear around local schools to help raise money for the charity Children in Need. We are looking for helpers (& budding Pudsey's) for the next event in November 2021. Contact Michael Adigun if you are interested


In 2019 members of Burnham Beeches Club spent the first week of November chaperoning Pudsey Bear.  We visited 11 schools throughout Burnham, Slough, Iver and the Farnhams. Pudsey had a great reception from lots of excited children (and staff ) and helped raise £9400 for CHILDREN in NEED. ths was a record for our Club and the result of the fantastic efforts of Rotarians Michael A, Fiona DL and Dean G who directed Pudsey and the helping Rotarians who ably assisted him.

We would like to thank the following schools for their enthusiastic participation:

Claycots School, Town Hall Campus, Slough

Claycots School, Britwell Campus

Iver Village Junior School

St Mary's Farnham Royal CE Primary School

Penn Wood Primary & Nursery School

Dropmore Infant School

Montem Academy School

Cippenham Primary School

Farnham Common Infants School

Farnham Common Junior School

Lent Rise School

We are planning to bring Pudsey to the area again in November 2020. If you would like to take part - and take on the role 'Pudsey Bear' for a few hours (or more) we'd love to hear from you. You can be sure to have a great time, entertain hundreds of kids and help raise money for a worthwhile cause.
