Arriving in spotty onesis and Pudsey costumes, the students and staff raised money for the charity by baking cakes and taking part in a Pudsey colouring competition.

Belinda Fowler was crowned the winner of the colouring contest before the entire FACET community posed together for a record-breaking photograph.

Manager Kris Harrold said: “I think it’s really important for our students to realise that there are other charities out there.

“Just because they are in a certain situation, there are always people who are worse off.”
