Players welcome Pudsey to Hotspur Way!

With only a few days until this year’s BBC Children in Need Appeal, the iconic mascot Pudsey Bear made a visit to Hotspur Way as part of the Club’s continued support for the campaign.

Pudsey wished the players good luck and got a ‘high five’ from the likes Mauricio Pochettino, Hugo Lloris and Kyle Walker before they headed out for a training session. 

We are encouraging fans to ‘Be a Hero’ for BBC Children in Need this year and show their support for the Charity.

Kyle said: “It’s always fun to have an extra player get involved and Pudsey was a natural! I’ve always been a fan of BBC Children in Need and the team are very happy to support such a great charity. There are so many different ways that the public can get involved to support this year, so we hope everyone does all they can to help raise money – it really will go on to make a difference.”

Whether you want to organise a charity football match, put on your walking boots to ramble across the countryside, dress up as your childhood hero, stage a quiz or put on a bake sale, your support will help make a positive change to the lives of disadvantaged children and young people across the UK.

BBC Children in Need currently funds 428 projects across London with funding of more than £19,151,857. BBC Children in Need will return to screens on Friday, November 13, on BBC One. The official fundraising pack is available for download from bbc.co.uk/Pudsey and is packed with ideas to help the public with their fundraising efforts, plus lots of exclusive content from the Charity’s celebrity friends. To date the Great British public has raised over £790 million for children and young people across the UK and the Charity is calling on people to once again pull out the stops and to help raise money to change young lives.
