Pudsey comes to Sing for Children in Need!

Well, alright, Pudsey actually conducted, rather than sang, if the headline misled you slightly.

Musicians and visitors at the University of Kent sang for Children in Need last Thursday, and raised £155 in thirty minutes as they performed ‘O Fortuna’ from Carmina Burana by Carl Orff.

Complete with two electric pianos and an array of percussion, volunteers arrived in Eliot Hall at lunchtime to piece together the famous theme to ‘The X-Factor,’ and raise money to support this year’s Children in Need appeal. The event was featured in the hourly cyclorama of county events during the Friday night broadcast on the BBC.

Many thanks to all who participated and made a donation, to Hannah Perrin who assisted, and to Pudsey himself for turning up!
