Raising funds for Children in Need
A TEACHING assistant went under the razor for the first time in more than 40 years on Friday to raise cash for Children in Need.
Terry Hartga, who works at Icknield Walk First School in Royston, had his beard shaved off for the first time since 1968 in aid of the BBC’s annual charity appeal.
Children also took part in a non-uniform day, and brought their teddy bears to school, and a total of �460 was raised.
Pudsey Bear popped up all over Crow country, and was in Royston High Street on Saturday with members of the Rotary Club of Royston. Their collection raised �1,610.
Club president Chris Hardy said: “As in the past, the response from the public was absolutely marvellous.

“It certainly helped to have Pudsey there. He was a great attraction for the youngsters who could not resist giving a donation.”
Earlier this year Pudsey enjoyed a day out at the Little Gransden Air and Car show, and organisers donated the proceeds from the show, �24,652, to Children in Need.
