SALISBURY schools are being invited to join the 2017 BBC Children in Need fundraising campaign.

Lloyds Bank and BBC Children in Need have launched The Big Spotacular to again help raise money for disadvantaged children and young people in the UK.

Last year’s campaign saw local schools including Newton Tony Primary School fundraise £18,036 in support of the charity.

In the run up to this year’s BBC Children in Need Appeal Night on November 17, schools across Salisbury are being asked to go Spotacular once again.

To get started, schools and nurseries are invited to register for the 2017 Big Spotacular fundraising kits which are full of tips, tools and treats to inspire young fundraisers across all age ranges.

Register before September 15 at
