Have your say

SUPERHEROES across Portsmouth will be rallying in their hundred to help this year’s Children in Need effort today.

Schools and work places right the way across the city are joining in with the national fundraiser, which is marking its 35th anniversary.

Hundreds of children at the Northern Parade Federated Schools, in Doyle Avenue, will be dressing silly for cash.

The youngsters at the infant school will be raising money by either wearing their favourite pyjamas or dressing up as a superhero.

While pupils at the junior school will be slipping into their best onesies for today’s bonanza.

Elsewhere pupils at St Jude’s CE Primary School, in St Nicholas Street, are hoping their baking skills will prove a perfect recipe for fundraising success.

The youngsters, who will also be in non-school uniform, will be hosting their own cake sale during the day.

And in nearby Wimborne Junior School, in Wimborne Road, Southsea, pupils are hoping their fancy dress ideas will add to the charity kitty.

It hoped that all the action from across Portsmouth and the entire nation will be able to top last year’s total or more than £32.6m.
