Lincoln ‘heroes’ raise funds for Children in Need

Fundraisers: People around the city have been dressing up and fundraising in aid of Children in Need.. Check them out!

People in Lincoln and the surrounding areas have been busy raising money of the BBC Children in Need appeal and among them is a few local ‘heroes’.

The campaign is supporting 2,600 projects that are working with children to face a range of disadvantages and challenges.

Across Lincoln on Friday, November 14 hundreds of school children, businesses and groups donned fancy dress costumes and collection buckets in order to do their bit for charity.

There are still plenty of chances to donate to the Children in Need cause, and the star studded television event will begin at 7pm tonight on BBC1, through to 2pm.

You can also donate by visiting the BBC Children in Need website.

Here are some of the efforts made by people in Lincoln today:
