Where to get the Children in need gear ?

Most schools in Andover take part in dressing up for Children in Need, check with your child’s school how they are dressing up and what donation they ask for in return, as each school is different.

Asda is the official supplier of Pudsey clothing, offering a range of t-shirts, PJs, onesies and accessories.
