People across Suffolk have been donning fancy dress, tackling sports challenges and selling bakes to show their support for the annual Children in Need appeal.

With the appeal show being televised this evening starting from 7pm, schools, businesses and organisations in the county have today been raising money for good causes supporting young people.

Samuel Ward Academy in Haverhill has gathered thousands for Children in Need this week, after students took part in a Swimathon yesterday, completing 94 miles between them.

According to their Justgiving page, the school had raised at least £3,400 as of this afternoon.

Meanwhile, Year 8 pupils at Bury St Edmunds' South Lee School organised an obstacle course in the sports hall that the whole school took on yesterday in aid of Children in Need.

And pupils at Stradbroke High School near Eye have organised a non-uniform day for all pupils and a mini fete in the hall.

And one of Suffolk's most famous residents, singer Ed Sheeran will be performing a song from his latest album = (equals) on the appeal show this evening, when he plays Overpass Graffiti.
